Building a European Network of Minority Rights Activists
Minority rights and LGBT+ rights in Europe, especially in Central and Eastern Europe, are declining. At the same time, right-wing populist forces promote their discriminatory agenda and hate speech. To empower civil society actors and push policy makers in the rights direction, the FNF European Dialogue Programme teamed up with our Polish partner Projekt: Polska for a series of capacity building activities to build a European network of minority rights activists, sexual education experts and policy-makers to protect LGBT+ rights.
Over the course of the year, we organised a study visit to Malta, two online trainings, as well as a physical dissemination workshop in Warsaw for Polish professionals working with youth or young adults on inclusive education and diversity in education. The insights that were gained by the practitioners and their international counterparts during these activities was put to good use: We developed a toolbox for educators.
In addition, the project also produced a publication about inclusive and diversity education in Europe.
