Working Group for Inclusion and Diversity in Europe (WIDE) is our newest Working Group of COC Limburg, aimed at promoting connections between various partners in North-Western Europe. WIDE is aimed at international queer cooperation, in order to promote an exchange of knowledge and expertise. Through this, we aim to achieve new activities, events, and procedures to ensure a cross-European approach to achieve our shared goals.
There are various Euregional cooperations, such as Euregio Meuse-Rhine, Euregio Netherlands-Flanders, or Interreg North West Europe. The goal of this working group is to enable active participation of various partners from the involved regions in the processes. With these cooperations, we are able to apply for various funds, local, national, and European subsidies in order to support and expand our operations.
A Queer conference in Luxembourg, a Limburg pride for both Dutch and Belgian Limburg, exchanges with Mönchengladbach, or a Queer Factory in Cologne. The goal is a diverse and broad cooperation in many fields in which we, and our partners are active for the queer community.
