AGORA 2023: EWL Young Feminist Summer Camp
The European Women's Lobby (EWL) Young Feminist Summer Camp - AGORA 2023 is currently accepting applications. Young feminists from all around Europe are brought to Brussels by the EWL program AGORA for a five-day meeting to discuss, explore, and learn from one another about feminism. The following AGORA will be held from September 4–8, 2023, and EWL is currently recruiting participants.
Any young woman who wants to interact with other young feminists and is between the ages of 18 and 30 (at the time of the AGORA) is welcome to participate in the program. They want to provide a forum for young women to interact, bridge gaps, inspire and be inspired, deepen bonds, develop skills, and hear the perspectives of other young feminists through a 5-day participation summer camp. By providing a forum for them to exchange experience, information, and ideas, the mission of EWL is to enable young European feminists to take on leadership roles as activists in a changing society.
