After 2 successful editions in Brussels and Strasbourg, EL*C annual study visit is making a comeback! We are excited to invite 20 EL*C members in Brussels from the April 16 to 18. You’ll be happy to know that your accommodation, travel expenses reimbursementand meals during those 3 days are all provided by EL*C (note: we don’t cover meals during your travel).
This year, we’re diving into the vital topic of the upcoming European elections. The conversation will focus on how to use electoral opportunities to advocate for lesbian rights at local, national and European level. and how to ensure that future Member of the European Parliament are lesbian geniuses or lesbian allies!
We have carefully planned out 3 days of discussions about lesbian activism, advocacy, political communication and networking. You will also get to learn more about inner workings of the European Parliament and the role that civil society can play in the upcoming elections. Plus, this study visit is a fantastic chance to meet and network with policymakers and allies as well as with the lesbians in town – it’s going to be a blast!
Please be aware that we will consider only one application per EL*C member organisation. Individual members are also welcomed to apply. Application are open only to EL*C members from the EU. In case more than 20 applications are received, we’ll be selecting a diverse and inclusive group that represents a wide array of geographic, cultural, and political backgrounds, as well as a variety of lesbian experiences across gender, race, ethnicity, age, ability, migration status, and more.
The program will be held in English, but you don’t need a perfect level of language to participate. If, however, language would be a barrier for you, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
Can’t wait to see you there!
