Support activists coming to the ILGA-Europe Annual Conference!
Our Annual Conference is the main annual event in European LGBTI activism and brings together over 250 people from all over the region. This is a unique opportunity for them to learn from each other, share experiences, plan and strategise on how to improve the situation for LGBTI people in individual European countries and the European continent at large.
We want to make sure more people from countries where being an LGBTI human rights defender remains challenging and sometimes even dangerous can attend this event. Our scholarship programme supports activists from Central, Eastern and Southern Europe, but also for instance trans and intersex groups.
In return, ILGA-Europe Annual Conference offers a space where the activists can feel safe and supported, learn new skills and enhance their knowledge. This is also a place where they can take a break from their daily struggle, re-charge their ‘batteries’ and receive moral support and solidarity!
Their participation and your financial support is not just an investment in them individually, this is an investment in the capacity of their organisations and the European LGBTI movement as such. Strengthening local and national grass-root organisations has direct and impact on progressing equality at European level.
