Call for Participants for a 6-Day LGBTQ+ International Exchange in Malta
6 Youth Organisations from Malta, France, Italy, Hungary, Lithuania and Turkey have joined forces to create a 6-Day Live-In LGBTQ Exchange in Malta which they titled 'PRIDE'. ALL PAID FOR
Dates: 4th - 10th April (Both Days included)
Venue: NSTS Campus, Msida
The project’s general aim is to raise youth awareness on LGBTQ+ issues.
We believe that knowledge is a weapon against ignorance which usually leads to fear or hate. To tackle this vicious spiral, it is necessary to be educated on the subject, and above all to educate the youth. Young people are our future leaders, it is thus necessary to ensure that they get knowledge on such an important topic.
To reach the main goal of the project, the following objectives have been set:
Learn more about the LGBTQ+ community (historically; terms and definitions);
Enhance knowledge on issues they deal with (social exclusion etc.);
Learn more about the situation of the LGBTQ+ community in other countries;
Promote values as tolerance, human rights, respect, freedom in an intercultural context;
Promote LGBTQ+ Human Rights.
This project will thus increase young people knowledge on the LBGTQ+ question, allow them to feel comfortable with their gender and sexual orientation, and increase their self-esteem. It will also enhance intercultural awareness, as the participants will get to know more about the LGBTQ+ situation in the partner countries.
This project is 100% EU-Funded by the Erasmus+.
All individuals must be between 18 - 29 years of age
