This training course provided opportunities for youth organisations to explore deeper the participation of LGBT* young people in their projects, communities and wider Europe.  

The participants explored the challenges and obstacles for LGBT* young people and planned concrete actions to help overcome these obstacles. This international training course explored these challenges in more detail thereby allowing youth organisations to have the space to learn more about the issues of the LGBT* community while simultaneously providing  a space for partner finding and develop projects together.
