ExchangeAbility - "Pink Power!"
ExchangeAbility is a project of ESN that aims to promote and foster mobility opportunities and accessible Higher Education possibilities for students with disabilities. Additionally, ESN also wants to provide the conditions and opportunities for students with disabilities to actively participate in student life, as well as, raise awareness of the local communities about the topic. In addition, the goal of this project is to educate ESN and through that the local society to show them the way to organise inclusive events and make Erasmus Student Network, and Europe in general, accessible for everyone!
Aims of the project
The project has dual aims and can be summarised as:
- Making ESN a more accessible association for disabled students at all the levels of its activities
- Increasing the number of students with disabilities going on exchange
The goal of the MappED! project is to provide equal opportunities to students with disabilities for their participation in the Erasmus+ Programme, providing them with the necessary tools to be better informed about their rights, procedures and support services they are entitled to. It also aims at reducing the disparities in learning outcomes affecting disadvantaged learners through increasing the number of students with disabilities participating in the Erasmus+ exchange. It is a follow up on the MapAbility project and has a platform with an improved interface that will be available on the MAppED! web page and newly developed mobile application.
