Beginning of the implementation of the international project "Designing green growth learning aids for young persons with disabilities” through the Erasmus Plus program
Youth with disabilities face multiple forms of discrimination which may lead to their exclusion from society and school. Attitudes toward children with disabilities, as well as the lack of resources to accommodate them, compound the challenges they face in accessing education. While lack of access to school is an issue, an equal concern is the inability of the education system to ensure quality education for youth with disabilities. In consequence, they suffer from low self esteem and lack the needed skills or knowledge to be able to apply for suitable jobs.
The project "Designing green growth learning aids for young persons with disabilities” brings together 6 partners from 6 countries:
Partner 1: Mreza za Dozivotno Ucenje, The Republic of North Macedonia
Partner 2: Asociatia Babilon Travel, Romania
Partner 3: AUSTRIAN ASSOCIATION OF INCLUSIVE SOCIETY, Austria
Partner 4: Udhëtim i Lirë, Albania
Partner 5: Perform On Top, Sweden
Partner 6: Avrasya Yenilikçi Toplum Derneği, Turkey
The project's objectives are:
- To identify and select content for the learning curricula specific for each participating country and to create suitable curricula attractive to the youth and especially accessible for youth with disabilities
- To develop special learning material and learning aids adjusted to the need of young persons with disabilities, and to encourage the schools and teachers to continue developing similar aids for other topics.
- To promote these learning aids as a public good, especially to interested stakeholders, and to introduce them in the learning process of schools as extracurricular activities.
- To promote the concept of a culture of Green growth in each of the countries and regions
The project will develop the following Project results:
R1: Developed learning content for the educational material suitable for young persons with disabilities of topics of green growth and culture
R2: Produced audio for visually impeded and special books as learning aids for young persons with intellectual disabilities
R3: Produced learning films about green growth and culture to each of the participating countries.
R4: Created mobile application and compassion the developed learning AIDS.
The project OER and other Green growth and cultural tools will provide an entirely new type of network in the formal and non-formal educational sector for disadvantage and marginalized groups of young people; it will not only push for but will also help establish a systemic network of collaboration between (civil society) non-formal and formal education, offering opportunities for an increased number of related projects, research studies, modern transnational courses and modules and new approaches and methodology in work with this target group.
