Move it for AEGEE

Last time The AEGEEan introduced the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) to you it was in connection with the first planning meeting between the Sports Working Group (SWG) and Policy Officer E.G. The fourth planning meeting will take place in Agora Rhein-Neckar, however an extensive promotion campaign has already been started.

The idea came from the SWG who wanted to do something for the Action Agenda and in particular for the international day against homophobia. The reason being that homophobia is an important part of this years Activity Plan.
Besides the SWG and Eline, the Human Rights Working Group (HRWG) is involved in the project and speaker Maria Arends tells us how it came about: “When the SWG first contacted us about “IDAHO” we were immediately enthusiastic and motivated to work with them and Eline to create a great action for this. The idea totally matches our strategic plan, and as we have been thinking about having such an action day for a while, the possibility to collaborate made us extra motivated. Also we have been talking about a project against homophobia before, so we may say that also from this perspective we enjoy working on this, and we hope that you will all take part in the flash mob!”
I like to move it, move it
The idea is simple. Gathering a lot of people. It can be both AEGEE people and non-members to organise a big colorful dance flash mob in your city. Since the involved bodies cannot be in all cities for one day, the dance to use is a tutorial for the famous Wiii game “Just Dance”. Antennae can practice and organise the flash mob already now in order to have as big of an impact as possible. Use rainbow colors, dressed in AEGEE merchandise carrying AEGEE flags and be creative are just some of the advices from the people behind the project. There are many different ways to be creative and it is hard not to be inspired if involved in the project. (Link to Facebook event)
The SWG, HRWG and Eline are all there to help antennae interested in taking part in the project. “We are aware that it might be difficult to organise such flash mob in countries like Greece, Russia and Ukraine but if locals eager to take part then we will of course help them,” says the initiator of the project and sectretary of the SWG Patricia Anthony.
