Aim of the event: 
  • Raise Awareness
Goal of the event: 
The aim was to raise awareness about how it is not to see anything and to make people aware of obstacles that sometimes they may not realise. Also, the goal was to make them feel as if they were blind people.
Short description of the event: 
We organized the event in collaboration with the International Office because every Wednesday they have linguistic exchanges on a bar. This time, we joined them and take our Erasmus students as well. We organize them into groups and covered their eyes with eye masks. We put them into different tables with a different flag each time in order to speak different languages. Then, after they were talking for a while, we took them to other tables and so, change the language and also their partners and let them start talking again. Then, they took off the masks and met each other.
How did your event go?: 
It went well, many people participated in the event and they all were really impressed about the different images they have made of the people they were talking to.
