Aims & objectives

The aim of the "Words Shape Identity" project (KA1, Mobility of Youth Workers) is to raise awareness about an inclusive LGBT terminology and its wider implementation in practical youth work.

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

22 youth workers from 11 different countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey) will meet at a 7-day training course in Ljubljana, Slovenia. They will discuss different situations in LGBT communities and inclusive LGBT terminology in a safe and creative environment, where everyone is motivated to express themselves, their role in local, regional, national and European context in creating safe spaces for LGBT youth with inclusive language.

Training methods used & main activities

This aim will be achieved using diverse methods of non-formal education, primarily creative writing.

Outcomes of the activity

The added value of the project will be a web page with blogs from the participants in which they will share their knowledge and experience gained during the training course and share it with other youth workers. The latter will be also encouraged to contribute their own blogs for the mentioned web page, therefore spreading the knowledge and experience even after the project's completion.
