Conference: Tackling homophobic and transphobic bullying in school - the role of teachers, school leaders, NGOs and policy maker

On 20 February 2013, ILGA-Europe in association with the Irish EU Presidency hosted the first ever EU level conference addressing homophobic and transphobic bullying in schools.

Read more about the conference and find presentations and pictures here.

The conference brought together EU, UNESCO and national policy makers, unions, teachers, and NGOs to jointly debate and look for methods of tackling these forms of bullying. The conference was opened by Ruairi Quinn, Irish Minister of Education and Skills.

This aim of the conference was to raise awareness about homophobic and transphobic bullying, their detrimental effect and engage various players in the field of education to exchange the best practices.

ILGA-Europe cooperated closely with two of our member organisations in Ireland, GLEN and BeLonG To, in organising this conference.
