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 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 future.

During the TC we will exchange experience and know-how, try how to manage mixed-ability activities and start new cooperations for common projects.
