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.
We will create new and unique study materials for school students.
We will train teachers and other specialists in the field of education on LGBT+ topics and inform LGBT+ youth of their rights and opportunities.
We will organize a first of its kind national campaign about the experiences of LGBT+ students in schools.
