Join us for the Cities for all – how? Summer School Training!
Together we will explore how to create more inclusive cities while developing skills to design creative and efficient campaigns at a local level.
- Exploring new tools and strategies for lobbying the demands of women and young LGBT+ individuals to different stakeholders.
- Equipping participants with appropriate skills to work with local communities and organising outreach activities at a local level. Encourage young people’s active mobilisation around the topic of Cities for all.
The programme will be based on the principles of non-formal education and intercultural learning. We strive for an active and inclusive environment for direct communication and sharing of knowledge. The sessions will be balanced between theoretical inputs, work in small groups, workshops, discussions, training, and other interactive methods of non-formal learning.
The ‘‘Cities for all – How?‘‘ Summer School training will gather young activists who are interested in looking for different urban approaches and questioning the existing urban planning status quo that neglects inclusivity, human rights and needs of the city dwellers. Participants will come from a variety of countries including Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo*, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.
