More powerful education through strengthend local capacity and increased outreach
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

RFSL is the Swedish Federation of LGBTQ rights. In that role it is involved in various educational activities for adults on topics such as human rights, inclusion, norm sensitivity, diversity, sexual orientation, health, and much more. With this project RFSL wishes to raise the capacity development of its branches to ensure broad involvement of active members and increase the impact of local activities promoting LGBTQ rights. Furthermore it wishes to strengthen its outreach and educational work with health care staff, authorities, teachers, cultural institutions, NGOs etc and extend this work to also include police, military, labour unions etc. to a higher extent. RFSL wishes to do all of this through developing its national and regional staff (and central volunteers). A total of 45 staff (from board, staff, local branches, main office etc.) will take part in mainly training courses and a few job shadowings. The trainings focus on developing the leadership, communication, counselling and training capacities of the participants. These are, among other narrative and appreciative approaches, question techniques to lead better, dialogue methods to address the power of social discourses and much, much more.As a result of this, the whole organisation will be better in running their educational services, where the starting point will be the learner (as the learner is the expert on its own life) and learning will be better contextualised (in the context of the learners' life). This form of learning is in three words more respectful, empowering and sustainable.
