Short description:
The project started in 2005. as an initiative to promote the mobility of young persons with disability. Eventualy, it became one of our most significant projects. Every year we gather young people from different parts of Croatia (and sometimes with participants from neigbouring countries of Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegowina and Austria) for a 3 to 6 days seminar. The idea of this project is to gather both persons with and without disabilities in order to learn from each other and particularly to break any prejudices regarding people with disabilities. The overal objective is to promote and contribute young disabled persons mobility, travel and participation in youth related activities. The project takes place in our Youth Hostel Zadar and it is a unique opportunity for young people to share accommodation and organize activities together with disabled persons. The lenght of the annual project depends on the financial contribution. This year we organized two gatherings, one in high summer season and one in December. During the summer project there were also participants from 7 European countries.
After several years of running this project we included more than 300 young people and influenced the recontruction works on the nearby beach where access to the beach and the sea is provided for persons with disability. With the end of this year we have started a big reconstruction of our Youth Hostel Zadar including the reconstruction of accesible rooms. This will make the YH Zadar the first hostel in Croatia accessible for persons with disability.
