Europe without barriers for all! INVPAL is the new social innovation platform that gives the power back to the people-all people.
Gdansk, Poland, Dortmund, Germany, London, United Kingdom
This idea helps not only solving concrete problems concerning people from 3 major European countries (Poland, Germany and UK) but also starts a new process, a new social movement. A generation 2.0 in which all human beings are included in every part of life. INVPAL is much more than a year and half lasting project ,but beginning of something new, a new approach in solving societal problems, with working at basics and creating crossectoral partnerships between social innovators, medical researchers and disabled Europeans.
Using our idea by working on real problems we can come out with useful tools that will be distributed among our study group, what is more a new platform of empowerment of disabled Europeans will be created. Connecting the world of science, especially young innvators with regular people, the only difference that disabled in one way or another. We want to empower them and emphasize their meaning to governments to make a change in future policies in such way that more and more cities will become disabled-friendly and government policies more inclusive. Its a long and hard process, but our group will proove that we can make a change, when we really really want it!
We would start off the project with organising consultations in three European cities - Gdansk, Poland, Dortmund, Germany and London,UK. During which we would like to approach at least 20 individuals with whom our research group would undergo consultations on their everyday problems.
Second step would be on one hand creating the internet platfom on which we would start campaigning about social inclusion in such way to try to begin the discussion on the European level, on the other hand to create a hub for many young innovators that already create many useful tools to help connect them with our target grThe last phase of the project would be financing of the production of the gadgets for the target group.Finally the idea is to create a new information and empowerment hub for the disabled.
