COFFEE (Colorful Fighters for European Empowerment) is a training course about youth workers, youth leaders, members and volunteers of youth organisations who work or willing to work with LGBTI young people. It will bring to Thessaloniki 30 participants from Sweden, Greece, FYR Macedonia, Italy, Turkey, Cyprus, Slovakia, Romania, Lithuania, Spain, Bulgaria and Belgium who want to increase their skills and knowledge on LGBTI issues. Through the activities of this training course which will be based on non-formal education, participants will understand the problems and concerns of LGBTI young people and they will acquire essential knowledge on human rights and the rights of the European citizen. They will also learn how to recognise and how to break the stereotypes and fight homophobia and transphobia in their own organisation. Finally they will be trained on how to support and integrate LGBTI young people in their activities and organisations and to organise actions for fighting intolerance and hate-speech.We expect through this training course participants from different parts of Europe to come together and work together for a common future; a society without stereotypes, prejudices, full of respect and solidarity.
