activist academy

by iglyo

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.

Every year, we hold both an in-person and an online edition of the Activist Academy. The goal is to jumpstart younger activists into skill-demanding and leadership roles within LGBTQI organisations. 

In summer 2023, we are very excited to bring the in-person Activist Academy back for its fifth edition and welcome young LGBTQI activists from around the world for an unforgettable week of learning, planning, and growing!

We are looking forward to being welcomed to Tallinn, Estonia, from 9-16 July 2023 by our host Member Organisation ECOM.
