Goal of the event:
The main goal was to raise awareness about vision impaired and blind people among our Erasmus students. We wanted to make them understand first-hand what kind of obstacles blind people could encounter in the everyday activities.
Short description of the event:
The event started in our local restaurant where students took their seats and started chatting. Our ESNers explained them the main goal of this activity and what they should be paying attention to. Just before the food was served, they were instructed to put blindfolds on. While they were eating blindfolded, our ESNers were interviewing them on how do they feel in that moment. During the whole activity, students needed to take care of each other and there was a big emphasis on trust as well. After the dinner, we tried to come to a conclusion that raised awareness about people with disabilities.
How did your event go?:
At the beginning, participants were hesitant and afraid of how will it go. However, they were motivated to give it a try and learn something new while having fun.
