Applications are open for the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) Young Feminist Summer Camp – AGORA 2023. The AGORA is an EWL programme that brings young feminists from all over Europe to Brussels for a 5-day gathering to discuss and explore feminism and learn from each other. The next AGORA will take place from 4-8 September 2023 and EWL is now looking for candidates to take part.
The programme is open to any young women aged between 18 and 30 (at the time of the AGORA) who are keen to connect with other young feminists. Through a 5-day participatory summer camp, they aim to create a space for young women to exchange, bridge gaps, inspire and be inspired, strengthen connections, reinforce skills and hear the voices of other young feminists. EWL’s objective is to empower young women feminists in Europe to be activist leaders in a changing world by giving them a space to share experience, knowledge, and ideas.
About the EWL
The European Women’s Lobby (EWL) is the largest European umbrella network of women’s associations in Europe, representing the diversity of women and girls in Europe. Currently, the EWL has 32 national coordination organisations in countries within the EU, in candidate countries, former EU Member States and in the European Free Trade Association, as well as 17 European-wide members, representing a total of more than 2,000 women’s organisations in Europe.
Together with their members, EWL campaigns for a feminist Europe which promotes women’s rights and equality between women and men in the European Union. The EWL envisions a society in which women’s contribution to all aspects of life is recognised, rewarded and celebrated – in leadership, in care and in production; where all women have self-confidence, freedom of choice, and freedom from violence and exploitation; and no woman or girl is left behind.
As an intersectional feminist organisation, EWL is committed to organising a summer camp that reflects and includes experiences that represent Europe in all of its diversity. As such, women of colour and from ethnic minority groups, women with disabilities, from the LGBTQI community and coming from marginalised groups are especially encouraged to apply.
In the application form, they want to hear about your commitment to feminist activism and women’s rights, whether through general activism, volunteering or work experience, academia or any other activities. They are looking for passionate and dedicated young feminists with different experiences and backgrounds.
