Objective 3: Network
We foster international cooperation across Europe and beyond by maintaining and growing an engaged, connected, and well-functioning pan-European network of LGBTQI youth organisations and activists, which facilitates peer-learning and support.
Annual Members’ Conference
Our biggest event of the year, and largest LGBTQI Youth gathering in Europe brings together over 75 representatives from our Membership each year. In addition to carrying out the statutory duties of the organisation, this three-day event is an important opportunity to build the skills of our Members, consult with the network on key issues and promote collaboration and partnership work.
Online networking opportunities
We offer various international networking opportunities at our online and on-site events, where participants are invited to connect with each other and build international collaborations.
Members’ activities sharing and targeting
IGLYO aims to increase the visibility of our Members’ work and activities by regularly sharing their updates on our newsletter and social media channels and sending them targeted opportunities from other members and the wider sector.
Building and developing the network
IGLYO proactively identifies and approaches potential new members to ensure the network continues to grow and develop. We also work with existing members to ensure they develop youth participation within their work and provide progression routes for younger, less experienced activists.
