On August 16, the second inclusive volunteering training program starts in Turkey. It will be attended by people with disabilities, volunteers, leaders of public organizations. Speakers from around the world will teach the School participants the entire methodology of creating a project from idea to implementation. Practitioners in their field will explain through personal experience what inclusive interaction is, how they themselves got into inclusion, and why it is inclusive interaction that can help solve many problems.

The School of Inclusive Volunteering will be useful and interesting to representatives of public organizations that work with people with disabilities, people with disabilities themselves, and activists.
