The project "AAA"
Stands for “Activism Against Ableism – Promoting political participation and activism of young citizens with different abilities” and is funded by the European Union in the Erasmus+ programme. AAA started in September 2022 and will be accompanied by different European organisations, NGOs, companies and municipalities until 2024.
The aim of the project is to foster social awareness on ableism and the challenges it creates for differently abled people, preventing discrimination and fostering inclusion. Develop transnational cooperation with regard to young people with disabilities. New resources are to be developed that will help these young people, for example, to take part in civic participation or even to set one up themselves. Overall, a new network of stakeholders, organisations and political decision-makers is to be created at a European level, which will help young people with disabilities to assert their interests, especially in politics.
