Empower inclusiv-ability

Seminar

10-12 November 2021 | Iceland

A capacity building activity open for youth organisations willing to empower inclusive activities in their work with young people with disabilities and health conditions. A new tool emphasizing hands-on approach will be launched.

The main aim of the event is to build competences among youth workers who would like to empower inclusive activities in their work with young people. One of the aims is to provide a concrete and practical tool for involving participation of young people with disabilities and health conditions.

The organisers will introduce new Guidelines on Disability-Inclusion as a tool to support organisations open to work with young people with disabilities and health conditions but with few or non-relevant experience when planning disability-inclusive European youth mobility projects.

The activity will focus on providing an overview of all the things to keep in mind regarding various individual needs of participants with disabilities and for the different stages in international short-term mobility activities involving young persons with disabilities and health conditions. It will moreover introduce the funding opportunities in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) programmes for quality disability-inclusive projects.

This event addresses youth workers, project managers and representatives of different kinds of organisations who would like to include young people with fewer opportunities in their youth mobility projects. It offers them space to explore the programmes as a tool for empowering and supporting a safe participation and social inclusion of young people within the programme itself, youth work and society.  

Aims & objectives:

  • Enhance youth workers’ competences in involving young people with disabilities and health conditions in European youth mobility projects.
  • Present hands-on approach when planning and implementing disability-inclusive youth mobility projects.
  • Provide a concrete and practical tool for involving participation of young people with disabilities and health conditions.
