Neja Berlič

I started as a trainer in non-formal education in 2017 with the support of the Pride Parade Association and at that time joined the pool of trainers. The areas Ii focus on in my in my trainers work are hate speech, peer violence and LGBTIQ+ topics. I am most interested in empowering (LGBTIQ+) young people, especially through the arts, creating a safer place to address difficult and complex topics, and building group dynamics.
