Our in-person LGBTQI Activist Academy is back!
Bucharest, Romania, 24-31 July 2022
IGLYO’s Activist Academy is a skills-based training programme for young people between 18 and 30 at the beginning of their activist careers who are passionate about activism, advocacy and learning, and have a strong interest in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) rights. The goal is to jumpstart younger activists into skill-demanding and leadership roles within LGBTQI organisations.
After two years of organising the Academy online and making it a global event, it’s about time we returned to a physical meeting. The Fourth Edition of the in-person Activist Academy will take place in Bucharest, Romania, between 24-31 July 2022 (with 24 and 31 July being travel days).
The fee to participate in the Activist Academy is 50€ per participant and IGLYO will cover all expenses related to your participation (travel, accommodation, food). IGLYO Member Organisations have priority in taking part in the Academy but, if you are not a Member, you can still apply as long as you meet the criteria and are based in a Council of Europe Member State.
While we wait to publish the full practical information and programme, you can already read the call through the button below and apply by 15 June 2022:
The Activist Academy Romania 2022 is organised by IGLYO — International LGBTQI Youth and Student Organisation and funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education Culture & Science and the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) programme of the European Union.
