Mind Inclusion 2.0 project has started!
Between 12th and 14th December 2018, the consortium of partners of Mind Inclusion project gathered in Sandrigo (IT) for the first coordination meeting.
Mind Inclusion 2.0 is an Erasmus+ funded project that aims at fostering the competencies of educators of Intellectually Disabled People (IDP) across Europe and at promoting the participative co-creation, and use, of an innovative web platform, which will contribute to the sustainable and inclusive involvement of disabled people in the society. It leverages on the previous Italian experience of dovevado.eu and expand it.
Through the new platform IDP will be able to review public places/spaces that are keen and sensitive to their needs. At the same time, it will stimulate a process at community level, rising awareness and promoting inclusiveness. IDP and the professionals taking care of them will receive trainings and produce guidelines on the innovative co-creation methodology that the consortium will use to develop the platform, based on users contribution and IDP-friendly digital technology. Furthermore, they will be trained on the facilitation of community processes for the creation of more inclusive societies.
