Center for Youth Education and Mobility “Element” Sarajevo

“Element” is an organization in Bosnia and Herzegovina that was founded in 2015 and focuses on youth minorities, including LGBTs. The founders have a strong track record in LGBT advocating initiatives and they will use this experience to bring the local LGBT communities together and to combine forces.

During an LGBT training camp, LGBTs under the age of 30 will be trained on LGBT rights and leadership. This knowledge and these skills are the basis for forming a team of ‘change agents’ who are active on school grounds and in their local community. Five actions will be organized to advocate for LGBT rights in the more rural areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Additionally, “Element” will organize an exhibition for a broad audience to raise awareness on LGBT issues and reduce the discrimination of LGBT individuals.
