Our main idea is to explore and discuss the concept of mixed-ability youth project, in which young people with and without a disability can participate on an equal basis. This project will get together THOSE who are already working with young people with physical/mental disability and THOSE who have never worked but would like to start in the future. During the TC we will exchange experience and know-how, learn how to manage mixed-ability activities, and start new cooperation for common projects. All of You are co-creators of this project, so let’s do our best.
