The 1st Local Roundtable was designed to take place in the city museum of Volos but due to Covid-19 restrictions, it was virtually realized.
This specific event happened on January 30, 2021 via Cisco Webex. The participants that attended the event are mostly Roma and non-Roma students and parents, teachers, students/prospective teachers, academics, media, stakeholders, education stakeholders, local people, and project team members.
The main subject of the Local Roundtable 1 was to discuss the experience of common spaces with Roma and non-Roma students and parents. Firstly, clarifying questions about the workshops and the film were made. Then the discussion moved to the issue of Roma integration. Among other issues, participants highlighted the fact of limited access in digital sources as an obstacle of participating in distance learning and a fruitful discussion was made. In conclusion, it was common understanding that during the pandemic restrictions the social/education between Roma and non-Roma gap was enlarged.
