Peaceweek against LGBTIQphobia in Barcelona

Participate from the 16th to the 23rd of July!

Participate in the peaceweek “Strengthening the youth response against LGBTIQphobia” in Barcelona from the 16th to the 23rd of July!



PeaceWeek “Strengthening the youth response against LGBTIQphobia” arrives this summer. This is a space for international exchange where people from different countries have the opportunity to learn about this subject and share their own experiences.


The aim of the activity proposed is to strengthen the capacities of SCI and youth LGBTIQ+ organizations in order to contribute to more inclusive societies through the struggle for the rights of LGBTIQ+ people and the promotion of volunteering as a tool to erase hate speech towards LGBTIQ+ people.


  • Get to know the realities of the different countries (institutional discriminations, violations of rights, LGBTIQ+ movement, resistance, alliances, asylum procedures).
  • Create a safe space for the participants to strengthen their capacities.
  • Exchange good practices.
  • Get to know local projects.
  • Promote volunteerism and active citizenship as tools of social transformation.
  • Explore topics such as the connection between LGBTIQ+ communities and different groups/movements (feminists, sex workers, refugees/migrants).
  • Explore the topics from a decolonial, anti racist perspective bringing to light different levels of discrimination and privileges.The proposed activity will be in the format of “Peaceweek”, a kind of work camp, where young people from all over the world will take part, but with a good part of the time dedicated to study and debate sessions.

Who can participate? SCI youth workers from Germany, France, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Belgium, Ukraine and Albania.

If you are interested in participating in this project READ THE CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS and fill out this form before the 1st of July! If in doubt, send an email to incoming@scicat.org.

Remembering Hiroshima day to not repeat the same mistakes

SCI India, Maharashtra state group, organised a local webinar for the solemn observance of the Hiroshima Day on 6 August.
They reflect upon the two of the darkest moments in human history: the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6th and 9th August 1945, respectively. They observed this event not just to revisit the horrors, but to strive to not allow that same mistake from happening again, especially now that the threat of a nuclear war seems all the more imminent.
