ACCESS4ALL held its first transnational project meeting (TPM) in Vienna, on the 4th and 5th of November, 2021. The partners from Austria, Italy, France, Cyprus, Spain and Greece joined together in compliance with all Austrian COVID-19 rules and regulations, for an in-person meeting to discuss the research and development of the project.
Towards the end of September 2022, ACCESS4ALL will introduce online training for teachers, policymakers, local administrative staff, social workers, etc, to broaden their knowledge regarding what an important group of their constituents, persons with disabilities, may require in order to better serve them.
Our modules touch on subjects such as international policies about accessibility, emotional intelligence, mainstreaming of disability, the potentiality of an inclusive society and more.
It is important as a policy maker or an influential person to understand the situation which people with disabilities are currently experiencing; where progress has been reached and how we could improve.
After the completion of the modules, each participant should have gained a more comprehensive knowledge base on how to better accommodate people with disabilities. Each participant will be awarded a certificate upon completion of the modules.
Furthermore, partners took the opportunity to visit the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien through a tour especially coordinated for people with disabilities. We also received speeches from representatives of organisations and associations of people with disabilities, which ensured inclusiveness in public places such as hospitals.
