Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Some may say that it only protects the rights of people with disabilities. But read the article 9 of the UN Convention and you’ll understand it is important for everyone. Only together we can build a Europe without barriers. Let's try! Join!

Where will your idea take place?

Ukraine, Latvia, Georgia

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europeans are united by common values: respect for otherness and diversity, security and integrity of the individual and others. It is so important that in every corner of Europe a person with disabilities feels all comfort, security and safety, as others. But not fight and overcome barriers during whole life. Thus the project "Europe is accessible for everyone" is very important thanks to information videos made by persons with disabilities emphasized and encouraged community to create accessible environment and decent living conditions regardless of physical condition, age, social status, etc. Defending the interests of all Europeans we protect Europe!!! And if create inclusive conditions for living, everyone will feel the happiness of living in the European Community

What is your impact?

Only defending the interests of everyone - we protect Europe!!! Countries often exchange activist groups for more effective changes of the best practices. However, people with disabilities are often not included in these groups through various barriers. We believe that this project will quickly create a comfortable inclusive condition for everyone, including people with disabilities. And people with disabilities are free to move around Europe and enjoy all the services. It will facilitate the development of accessible environment in accordance with the principles of universal design, which will make comfortable life of all Europeans.

How do you get there?

International Workshop: 10 days. There will be elaborated the joint priorities that will be clear and comprehensible to all members of the workshop on the concept of "accessibility" under Article 9 of the UN Convention. The training program is reporting technology, operator skill, the basics of installing and practice. After the training, each group report 5 stories of his country on "accessibility" and place them on a specially created podcast. Then will conduct competition for the best videos. One of the criteria of the competition will be the number views materials and their popularity. Each country will be conducted information campaign on the project "Europe is accessible for everyone". At the end of the project will tour to friendly countries with best practice accessibility.
