With their boat LGBTI-Twente wants to demonstrate that Twente is an innovative region where you can study or go to school safely. A region where you can be yourself and live wonderfully. At educational institutions such as ROC Twente, Saxion Hogeschool and University of Twente you can be who you are, and love who you want. This is because of the heroes who stand in front of the class, the teachers. School safety is an important theme. ‘Being different’ is always difficult at school or university. Especially when you are young. Deviating from the ‘norm’ is difficult, and for that you have to be brave. What they also strive for with this boat, with a wink, is to get rid of the ‘prejudices’ people have about Twente. The boat was made possible by Enschede, Hengelo, Novel-T, Twente Branding, LGBTI student association Exaltio, COC Twente-Achterhoek, the Twentse Ambassade Amsterdam,┬áTechniekPact Twente and the province of Overijssel. Together they make Twente a safe LGBTI-region that is full of progress and innovation!
