Looking back at the Global Online Activist Academy 2022

28 April - 14 May 2022


The third edition of IGLYO’s Global Online Activist Academy was yet another worldwide journey of learning, implementing, and having fun!

We were delighted to welcome one of the most geographically diverse groups IGLYO has ever seen. We had more than 40 young LGBTQI activists taking part from Indonesia to Ireland, from Kazakhstan to Kenya, from Turkey to Tanzania, to name a few.

In the first part, we welcomed a variety of experts who facilitated sessions on political storytelling, digital campaigning, public speaking, and personal narratives for change. Teams of activists then worked collaboratively on their challenges while receiving feedback from their mentors, before presenting their challenges to the jury and other participants, who all voted for their favourite projects.

We congratulate the Quacktivists and the Rainbow Universe Team for arriving on top of the leaderboard, and winning a €500 cash prize. We also thank our experts, team, and amazing participants for another fruitful Global Online Activist Academy!
