According to the World Meteorological Organisation changes to global and local climate have negatively affected millions of people and cost billions in 2022 alone. Many of those people impacted have a disability.
Despite not only being more vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change, persons with disabilities are also more likely to be excluded from conversations and actions to protect and promote rights to a clean and healthy environment.
In this context, the new Erasmus+ project, Green Enough, aims to promote the inclusion of people with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities in climate change conversations. It will also empower them to make their own decisions to implement sustainable practices.
On 1st – 2nd February 2023 ΑΚΤΙ met the Green Enough project partners for the first time in Piraeus, Greece. Here they discussed the development of the project’s Augmented Reality app, that will help to educate adults with disabilities on the basic principles of recycling as well as the foundations for the Green Enough training course for professionals.
