ExchangeAbility, mobility of students with disabilities
The project, carried out by Erasmus Student Network (ESN), Youth Agora and European Disability Forum, aims at involving students with disabilities in the activities of ESN as well as to provide internationalisation at home and better opportunities for students with disabilities to be mobile in Europe. Through participation and involvement in these activities, students with disabilities were given an opportunity to experience the international and intercultural atmosphere associated with exchange programmes and therefore to benefit from them at their home universities.
A handout was made for the local sections of ESN to guide them in the process of organising accessible activities and, therefore, making ESN a more accessible association. The long-term goal of the project is to foster the mobility of students with disabilities, which is currently particularly low in the EU (only 0.17% in 2008-2009), to go on an exchange and to provide them with the best possible conditions, preparing the International Relations Offices as well as the local ESN sections for receiving students that have special needs during the exchange.
