The Council

With more than 250 trans activists, the Council is both a political gathering, and a celebration of the trans community – one of the most important meetings for the trans community in Europe and Central Asia. Hosting the 8th European Transgender Council will be an excellent opportunity to strengthen dialogue with decision makers and to engage in advocacy work. Additionally, a lot of work, fun and friendship awaits the hosts of this amazing event.

Your role

The role of the organising group or organisation is to handle the logistics and organisation in the host city (such as finding and booking a conference venue and hotel) and to obtain funding for the Council (see below) with support from TGEU’s Board and staff. TGEU will not be able to cover all the costs of the Council, which means the host city needs to come up with a viable plan for obtaining funding and to be able to plan the anticipated costs of the Council (see a sample in the application form). Several organisations can candidate together.

Bear in mind that the registration fee needs to be kept as affordable as can be.

TGEU will be able to provide technical assistance to help obtain funding and will take the full responsibility for securing funding for international scholarships.

TGEU’s support

TGEU’s Board and Staff will provide support to the organising team throughout the process and preparing the contents of the Council (publishing calls, inviting speakers and performers…), will be the responsibility of TGEU’s Board and Staff. TGEU will also communicate on the event through its networks.

Main selection criteria

  • To be a group of at least three people that form the core organising team
  • To be able to host the event in Spring or early Summer 2020
  • To have experience in organising bigger events, including securing funding
  • To be in a EU-based country
