activist academy

by iglyo

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, we are thrilled to announce that the third online and sixth overall edition of the Activist Academy is going online and global again from 28 April to 14 May 2022! 

The call for applications is now open for young people aged 18-30 with a keen interest in LGBTQI rights and activism and from across the globe, regardless of where they live (in 2021, we had participants from Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe!). What’s more is that this online edition is completely free of charge!

Ready to hop on board? Put on your activist cap, read more about the agenda (the teams, the challenges, the expert workshops) and our fabulous Academy Trophies, and apply before Sunday 17 April 2022 at 23:59 CEST (extended deadline) by clicking the button below!
