IMPORTANT NOTE: The Global Online Activist Academy 2022, initially planned earlier in April, has been postponed to 28 April to 14 May 2022, with a new application deadline on 17 April 2022 at 23:59 CEST.

IGLYO’s Activist Academy is a 2-week 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 successful online editions in 2020 and 2021, the sixth edition of IGLYO’s Activist Academy is going online and global again from 28 April to 14 May 2022. The call for applications is now open until Sunday 17 April 2022 (extended deadline) for young people aged 18-30 with a keen interest in LGBTQI rights and activism and from across the globe. What’s more is that this online edition is completely free of charge and open to applications for teams of up to three participants.

In the course of two weeks, participants in the Global Online Activist Academy 2022 will take part in 3-4 expert-facilitated workshops, as well as 2 real-life challenges to apply the skills they learned, while receiving feedback from last year’s graduates and judges. The Activist Academy 2022 Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 winning teams based on their completed challenges, with each team receiving a prize worth €500!
