Goal of the event:
To raise awareness about disabled people. To find out how to talk to the disabled, what's rude to say, what's polite to say.
To learn how Warsaw is adapted to disabled students.
Short description of the event:
ESN UKSW would like to invite you to our ExchangeAbility workshops! The workshops which took place at our uni lasted for 2 hours.
During these you'll learn the savoir-vivre in relations with the disabled. You'll also have the opportunity to realize the difficulties that people with disabilities have to face in everyday life and ask any questions that bothers you. We've invited two guests who agreed to speak to us. One of them represented the Integration Foundation.
The event consisted of a lecture, Q&A, movie spots.
This is exactly what we did. There were a lot of questions and we learned a lot that day!
How did your event go?:
We've invited Integration foundation which helps disabled people. They showed us what they do, asked us to ask them questions. Then they showed us many videos, followed by a comic book about Savoir Vivre. Participants loved the idea and the workshops. They were very moved by the stories from our guests and we were all touched when they started talking about their disabled friends.
