In mid-November, we were invited by ILGA-Europe to join a three-day professional exchange in Brussels together with representatives of the GLAS Foundation and the Bilitis Resource Centre. LGBTI and feminist organisations from Estonia, Slovenia, Georgia and Ireland were also invited.
The theme of the exchange was strengthening communication strategies, and the hosts from ILGA-Europe shared valuable resources and a host of training materials with the organizations. In addition to inspiring discussions between partners on the challenges of working for LGBTI rights, we had the opportunity to present our work to other organisations to get their feedback, and to participate in useful training and group exercises to improve communication skills.
We are grateful to ILGA-Europe for hosting and hope this is just the beginning of many successful partnerships in the future.
