LGBTQIA+ Safe Space


The committee members of the Network of Buddhist Organisations support the global initiative of the Safe Space Alliance. This means
that NBO events will be a safe space for the community.

A safe space is a place where the LGBTQIA+ community can freely express themselves without fear. It is a
space, physical or virtual, where violence, bullying or hate speech against members of the LGBTQIA+
community will not be tolerated. A safe space does not guarantee 100% safety, but is rather a place that
you protect if an incident (violence, bullying or hate speech) should occur.

the NBO committee supports and endorses the aims and activities of the European Rainbow Sangha of the
European Buddhist Union (EBU).
