During the dissemination phase, the vast majority of the activities and actions that were developed were aimed at disseminating the results of the project, especially the two Intellectual Output and the rest of tangible and intangible results.
We had the opportunity to show the world -through effective multipliers- the results of the project, ensuring that they are used in secondary schools throughout Europe by teachers and students, especially roma students. To this end, in the implementation phase, a series of materials, campaigns, and dissemination activities were created that not only ensured their impact and use, but also the possibility that they would be replicated freely and free of charge in other formal and non-formal educational areas.
With this, the impact of the project and its results at the European level has been very relevant, since it has reached more than 90 organizations in 29 different countries.
Among the many actions carried out, the following stand out:

The main objective of the activity was not only to make the project’s results known to the multipliers, but also that they made use of the Intellectual Output and the tangible results by testing their possibilities and involving them in their process of evaluation and improvement. It was also a good opportunity to reach and consolidate new non-formal partner organizations, enabling our access to experts, education professionals, teachers, school headmasters, etc. able to provide us with proposals for improvement, new opportunities for dissemination, and to extend the network of collaborators to strengthen the impact and use of the results.
