The Steering Committee of the European Year of Citizenship Alliance – EYCA, a partner of OBESSU, adopted a Resolution on the situation in Ukraine on 4th of March.

OBESSU is happy to share with you the following greeting on this day when love is in the air!
Still today, many Europeans do not have the same equal opportunities to express something as human as being in love. Discrimination of LGBTQ youth is a reality in many European countries. The reasons for this are many, but it can be prevented with ensuring inclusive and safe educational environments, education free from heteronormativity and any kind of stereotypical assumptions and proper sexual education. OBESSU believes young people have the right to explore and become familiar with their own unique identity in an environment free from any kind of restrictions imposed by traditional gender and sexual identity constructions.
Let’s stand up together against heteronormativity in education and life!
