We understand inclusion not only as an interaction of people with disabilities with society, but also as an interaction in the society of representatives of different social groups: people with and without disabilities, elderly people, representatives of various social minorities, people who overcome alcohol and drug addiction.
What do we mean by inclusive interaction? This is an interaction of representatives of various social groups, various minorities, including socially excluded. Representatives of each social group have their own special talents and abilities, which we call Extrability. In interaction with representatives of other social groups, a person gets an opportunity to develop his inner hidden talents and abilities.
What is an inclusive volunteering? This is participation in the organization and implementation of socially useful projects in which people with or without disabilities, and other social groups interact, in the process of which new business competencies are acquired. What is the main goal of the inclusive volunteering? Searching for your best project, the implementation of which will switch you to a new level in society. This is an opportunity to go to study, to start work or create your own social and commercial projects.
What is the structure of the school of inclusive volunteering 2020? We will hold four webinars where experts in the field of inclusive volunteering from different countries will share theoretical and practical knowledge off successful inclusive volunteering in countries with different socio-economic conditions. As part of the webinars, all school participants will have an opportunity to present their old and new volunteer activities and projects. On the one hand, you can get high-quality feedback from experts, on the other hand, attract new supporters of the inclusive volunteer movement from your own country and from other countries of the world into your activities. Thanks to technological and socio-economic changes in the world, we got an opportunity to create new useful projects online. The theme we have chosen for the School of Inclusive Volunteering 2020 is “Inclusive volunteering in tourism and sports.” And at the same time, we will be happy to scrutinize out volunteer activities related to other areas of activity.
A special bonus from school experts is life hacks related to successful social activities.
A series of webinars is planned to be completed by the international conference “Inclusive Volunteering in Tourism and Sports”. After the conference, school participants will receive expert support for ongoing volunteer activities and best activity competition. The winner of the competition will take part in the IV Congress of people with disabilities from villages and small towns in the largest village of Russia, Kinel-Cherkassy.
All students of the school will receive certificates of completion. Activists of the school of inclusive volunteering will take part in the annual expedition “Sails of the Spirit” in the Mediterranean Sea in September 2020.
