Community trainings have started to ensure ROMACT process sustainability in Romania

A series of Community Action Group (CAG) trainings has started in North Western Romanian ROMACT municipalities. Community empowerment and mobilisation are the main focus of these workshops which started in Tarnaveni on 7th March. Tarnaveni has the largest Roma population in Mures County and the training day was attended by representatives from the seven Roma communities of Tarnaveni.  During the training participants shared their perception of what constitutes a developed community. They particularly highlighted the importance of education and schooling. “I was impressed by the exercise” stated Sorin Meghesan, Mayor of Tarnaveni, who attended the training. 
These training sessions under the umbrella of ROMACT are crucial as they will allow for a broader involvement of Roma communities in the local decision-making process and also ensure the sustainability of the ROMACT process beyond the project implementation.
