AGORA young feminist summer school

Second edition of young feminist summer school coming up!

[Brussels, 25 August 2016] At the European Women’s Lobby, we are very excited that the second edition of AGORA is just 2 weeks away! This year we will host 52 amazing young feminists from 22 European countries taking action all over the continent. We are very proud that the group of participants of our summer school is very diverse. There can be no doubt that the young feminist movement is truly vibrant across Europe!

The participants work on numerous different issues, like gender mainstreaming, stereotypes, migration, LGBATIQ rights, reproductive rights, climate change and many more. Young policy makers, campaigners, artists, scholars, bloggers and activists will come together to share their knowledge and experience during 4 days of workshops. The participants will also have a chance to chance to visit the European Parliament and to meet two MEPs, Ulrike Lunacek, Green, Vice President of the EP and Malin Björk, GUE/NGL. The participants will learn about the role of the European Union in achieving gender equality and will be able to ask their questions.

The purpose of this year’s edition is to empower young feminists and to learn how to keep motivated in the difficult times of crisis when women’s rights are in particular danger. The participants will try to answer the question: how to remain full of energy and optimism in their work towards gender equality.

The EWL is still fundraising for this great project! To support these young changemakers, invest in the future of gender equality and donate NOW!
