"I have rights" study session

The training activity took place
in Budapest, Hungary
organised by IGLYO
18-22 Apr 2016 (Arrivals 17/04 & Departures 23/04)

Aims & objectives

The specific objectives of the study session were to:
Develop a strong understanding of the issues faced by intersex children and young people
Build support and solidarity for intersex rights across the LGBTQ movement
Gain an insight into the intersex movement and how it has developed
Explore how LGBTQ organisations can work to better include intersex people/issues in their work
Create a campaign/resource to raise awareness of intersex rights

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The participants were 28 young people from 19 countries.
The prep team had 6 people from 5 different countries, 1 educational adviser from CoE and 1 job shadower.

Training methods used & main activities

The program was developed by the preparatory team and it will be mostly based on non-formal educational methods, experiential and learner-centered. Some expert-delivered formal sessions will be part of the program, as well.
We used team building activities, exercises about inclusion, walking debates,equity walk, jeopardy, etc.

Outcomes of the activity

The participants finished this week with more knowledge on the topic of intersex rights and a part of them will be involved to explore further work with IGLYO for a Parent's Guide and a Position Paper.
They planned activities for 1 week, 6 months and 1 year and the prep team will follow up with them by skype.
Our participants felt more empowered by the end of the week, as they have meet other fellow activists that are fighting for intersex rights.
