The well-being of young LGBTI people 


In January 2020, Nordic co-operation within the Nordic Council of Ministers was extended to now also include work for equal rights, treatment and opportunities for LGBTI people in the Nordic countries. During the Danish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers that same year, a Nordic project highlighting the well-being of young LGBTI people was initiated. The aim of the project was to spread knowledge and share experience within the region to help improve living conditions for young LGBTI people in the region. 

NIKK was commissioned to carry out the project and produce a report within these terms of reference, the report was published in April 2021.

The report consist of two parts: a research overview describing current knowledge about the well-being of young LGBTI people in the Nordic countries; and a survey presenting a selection of initiatives aimed at improving the well-being of young LGBTI people in the Nordic countries.
