IGLYO Calls, LGBTQI
IGLYO is proud to announce a call for host organisation of the conference ‘Remember Our Needs, Too’. The event is kindly supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
Deadline for applications: Thursday 7 May 2020, 23:59 CET.
Across Europe, the simple degree of existence of any sexuality education at the school and high school level varies from zero to full government-endorsed attempts to comprehensive sexual health programmes. The sexual health disparities widely reported for LGBTQI youth, such as increased rates of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, the higher rates of unwanted pregnancies, etc, may be caused, in part, by the type of sex education LGBTQI youth receive (or don’t receive) in school.
What’s more, LGBTQI young people face particular challenges in the achievement of sexual health due to lack of support in the settings that traditionally promote positive youth development — schools, families, peers, and communities. This is why providing LGBTQI youth with accurate and useful information that is relevant to their sexual health and development is critical.
Specific objectives of the conference
IGLYO will organise a 5-day international conference to bring a contribution to the healthy development and wellbeing in terms of sexual health of adolescent and young LGBTQI people across Europe.
The conference will bring together young LGBTQI people, LGBTQI youth workers, with current or recent personal/professional experience in education (either formal or non-formal) on sex and relationships that is inclusive of and relevant to young and adolescent LGBTQI people.
The host organisation
To achieve all of this, IGLYO needs to work with a host organisation. The event is kindly supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe, but requires some additional co-funding mainly for accommodation, catering and venue hire.
