Nikos Voulgaropoulos, advocate for Greece’s people with disabilities (1959-2019)

It’s with great sadness that I learned today of the passing of Nikos Voulgaropoulos (14 February 1959 – 16 August 2019), a dear friend, advocate and fighter for the rights of Greece’s people with disabilities. I remember the first time I met Nikos in the summer of 2005 in Athens. Paralised after an accident in 1983, he was angry with everyone who blocked a full inclusive society. “If the government doesn’t do it, we will do it!” And so Nikos did. Nikos’ brainchild disabled.gr, established in 1993, became for many years the place to be for Greece’s people with disabilities, offering a vast amount of information, helpline, forums, etc. He also organised EXPO Autonomia in Athens. Nikos’ enthusiasm was overwhelming, and so were his straight talks. Sex, politics, drugs, etc., as long as it could help people with disabilities, it HAD to be discussed. The crisis in Greece hit people with disabilities very hard, as clearly described by Nikos in a 2013 interview. Unfortunately it also affected his lifework. Disability is not something to hide. Disability screams. Do not let her scream uncontrollably. Check it out to promote yourself positively. Nikos, you will be missed by the entire disability community, family and friends. But this is [...]

A holistic view on inclusive leisure activities

Our CEO Karel Van Isacker presented “A holistic view on inclusive leisure activities” at the Positive Leisure event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on 5 July 2019. He focused on leisure as a context for active living, recovery, health and life quality for persons with and without disabilities. The concept that leisure is a basic human right has been advanced in: The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). Article 24 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights specifically mandates “the right to rest and leisure including reasonable limitation of work hours and periodic holidays with pay.” The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child has recognized “…the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.” The United Nations Principles for Older Persons states that they “…should have access to the educational, cultural, spiritual and recreational resources of society” (Clause 16). The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) – Article 30 – Participation in cultural life, recreation, leisure and sport “…to enabling persons with disabilities to participate on an equal basis with others [...]
