17:30 - 19:00

Mariboes gate 8 Oslo

Vi arrangerer samtale om seksuell orientering, kjønnsidentitet og kjønnsuttrykk verden over på Oslo Pride. Sett av datoen!

For the past three years, Sex og Politikk, IPPF Norway, has been leading a centre to
strengthen the work on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression within
International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). The centre has worked closely with
IPPF Member Associations in 11 countries to change policies and laws. Looking back, we see
a magnitude of ways and efforts contributing to change and human rights for all. This
seminar will show examples from three countries, North Macedonia, Sri Lanka and
Indonesia, and discuss the roles of schools in preventing violence and discrimination.
