PERSBERICHT – ONMIDDELLIJKE VERSPREIDING (pdf) Hoe toegankelijke interactie tussen jongeren met en zonder een beperking kan bijdragen tot een meer inclusieve samenleving. Jaarlijks vindt op 3 december de Internationale dag voor personen met een handicap plaats. PhoenixKM BVBA (www.phoenixkm.eu, Kortemark) gaat daarom in die week in het kader van het Europese ACCESS-INTERACT project (www.accessinteract.eu/) jongeren uit Bulgarije, Oostenrijk en het VK naar het Vlaamse Ieper brengen.

Aan de hand van concrete voorbeelden en situaties gaan we jongeren bewust maken dat het inzetten op inclusieve communicatie van jongs af aan kan bijdragen tot een meer inclusieve wereld. Daarom gaan we met deze groep jongeren het volgende organiseren op 4, 5 en 6 december 2018: Interactieve trainingsessies in Ieper met betrekking tot toegankelijke communicatie tussen jongeren met en zonder beperkingen; alsook met betrekking tot inclusieve tewerkstelling in Vlaanderen – 4 & 5 december 2018 Bezoek aan de sociale onderneming Page Electronics NV in [...]

How the learning space can become an inclusive learning space – Lessons from Europe

How the learning space can become an inclusive learning space – Lessons from Europe [To be presented at CAVA2018, 21-24 August 2018 in Medellin, Colombia. With thanks to Silvia Margarita Baldiris Navarro.] Inclusive education is cemented in article 24 of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its Optional Protocol (A/RES/61/106) which was adopted on 13 December 2006 at the United Nations. In Europe, this has created opportunities, but also tensions. On the one hand, there is a need for access to learning material, supportive education practices, inclusion oriented teaching practices, as well as physical accessibility to schools, universities, VET centres, etc. On the other hand, all these aspects must coincide and be complementary. This symbiosis has been somewhat cumbersome and needs fine-tuning. A lesson to be learned by Latin American initiatives. The keynote will highlight a number of European initiatives and access to online free [...]
