Movisie values the international networks in which it participates. We consider it important to share knowledge and to work together at international level, since social development issues usually are not limited to a single country. For general information on Movisie’s participation in international networks you can contact Movisie International.

Rainbow Cities Network

A growing number of European cities use inspiring methods and approaches to fight discrimination of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. They acknowledge LGBTI people as equal citizens, by designing and implementing inclusive policies and thus caring for their wellbeing in school, at work and in the streets. Other cities can learn from this, without having to reinvent the wheel.
