On 1st July, 2020 the National LGBT rights organization LGL together with the Swedish organization Friends organized an online seminar for volunteers of LGL‘s emotional support platform. During the seminar, Henrik Karlsson, Research and Development Manager at Friends, presented LGL‘s volunteers’ the best practices in dealing with bullying.
Friends’ research and development manager Henrik Karlsson presented the situation of LGBTI young people in Sweden, discussed the results of the latest surveys and answered questions from LGL volunteers.
Although the Swedish organization Friends works with all types of bullying, homophobic bullying is always integrated into the perspective of promoting inclusion in schools. Swedish schools must make every effort to ensure that LGBTI students do not suffer discriminatory or degrading treatment.
We kindly thank the Embassy of Sweden in Lithuania for cooperation in organizing the seminar.
