MI20, MIICT and FACE Projects joint webinar about innovation and social inclusion
At the occasion of the final event of the Mind Inclusion project, celebrate inclusion and innovation during the 4th Mind Inclusion Webinar!
Inclusion is a daily challenge, strengthened once more by the current global health crisis. The need to talk about the struggles of those that are unheard and to reflect on actions to take in order to “leave no one behind”, becomes stronger every day. It is with this purpose that the three European projects Mind Inclusion 2.0, MIICT and FACE come together in one joint event to talk about innovation and inclusion: Shaping inclusive societies: the promising path of innovation.
The 6th of May at 15:00 CEST, three experts involved in the development of services fostering inclusion will hold a panel discussion about how innovation can bring new opportunities and perspectives in the fight for inclusion. Departing from their own experiences and the lessons learnt through their work, the experts will focus specifically on three groups: people with disabilities, migrants, and youth.
The event will provide the participants with the opportunity to reflect about and to learn from the expertise of the three panellists and from the best practices developed in the framework of the three projects. In this way, each of us can make a step forward in this daily challenge, towards a more inclusive society!

The APP that the project is developing wishes to help the People with Disabilities to have access to public spaces and to exercise their rights. The project consortium gathers lead partner Margherita: Società Cooperativa Onlus (Italy) together with Polibienestar Research Institute, INTRAS Foundation (Spain), Social IT Software & Consulting Srl (Italy), Lietuvos sutrikusio intelekto zmoniu globos bendrija «Viltis» (Lithuania) and ALDA (France).

The FACE project is a project funded by the European Commission through the ERASMUS+ program. Based on the recognition that there is a lack of knowledge and tools on how to handle the increasing phenomenon of cyberbullying amongst teens and children the project aims at developing guidelines, materials, networks and innovative methodologies combining multidisciplinary artistic approaches to tackle this important issue. FACE is designed to involve the following different target groups (youth workers, students, parents, local authorities and other stakeholders) to design together tools to prevent and fight cyberbullying among youth.
