With the Kick-off meeting held on 14.-15.12.2020. Project Hi-Ability has officially started. Project Coordinator Società cooperativa sociale Controvento ONLUS (Italy) along with Health Life Academy, Trekify (Italy), EPIONI (Greece), EPOS
Fylis (Greece) and EASPD (Belgium) will engage in a 2-year project Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
Project wants to “open the doors to new spaces of education”, promoting an education for autonomy, independent and inclusive life for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID), in a context still not very accessible such as hiking and eco-tourism.
Hi-Ability puts the natural environment at the centre of the activities, becoming the theatre of an original methodological approach of a therapeutic-rehabilitation programme based on the socio-educational value of the natural environment.
Project’s general objective (GO) will be to promote the empowerment and the social inclusion of people with cognitive disabilities, by enhancing their abilities in the field of outdoor touring and hiking.
