ABOUT THE PROJECT

“Step into a (dis)ability” project is a journey towards finding out how a person with a disability feels and discovering the obstacles and challenges that they face due to inaccessibility. We create a place where young people can break the stereotypes about disability while stepping in each other’s shoes & experiencing the disability.

WORKING METHODS

In “Step into a disability project” participants will get challenged to live every day with a different kind of
disability. During the project, we will have daily activities (eating, reading, sleeping) but also more hardcore ones (puddle sup, hiking) -plus personal development processes. But imagine doing all of that with no ability to see or with the need to move in a wheelchair in inaccessible places? Is the disability the challenge or the accessibility? Boom!
The project will rock. You will make it rock. So, we wait for you all!

Can I join?
ღ Are you coming from Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Spain?
ღ Are you between 18 to 30 years old or…are you up to be the group leader, with no age limit?

ღ Are you into challenging yourself, being responsible and committing to a 7-day stepping into each other’s shoes & experience diverse situations of inaccessibility, discrimination and the real life of a disabled person?
