Teenage Students Raising Hands

Safe schools
for LGBT+ students

According to our first school climate survey conducted in 2018,

many LGBT+ students feel unsafe at school because they experience hostility,

because LGBT+ topics are not discussed in class or are discussed negatively,

and because fellow students and school staff do not draw attention to these issues.


The aim of this project is to create a safe and inclusive school environment

for the LGBT+ youth in Estonia. In order to achieve this, we will be working with

young people as well as specialists, institutions, and organizations in the field

of education, and communicating with the general public.
