Chrysallis - Close to Disability will participate in the final meeting of "ESST" project that will take place on 27/05/10 to 31/05/10 in Cosenza, Italy. During the meeting information will be provided on the finalization of the project.

The "ESST" project is funded by the Life Long Learning, Leonardo da Vinci (Learning Partnership) program. The framework of this project is given by the matching of the ever-increasing demand for equal opportunities by people with special needs with the traditional tourist vocation of the lands we belong to. The equation between equal opportunities and tourism has given us the idea for this project, eager to explore possible synergies among the partners in the field of tourism accessible by all, with particular concern in museum, gastronomic and naturalistic circuits.

Our target audiences are adults and young adults trainees and staff members, with or without disabilities, whom we want to involve in reflections on the transition from education to working life and on the opportunities offered in this context by the EU, against the scenario of lifelong learning.

Chrysallis is a non-profit voluntary organization that strives to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. We, as Chrysallis, work against the discrimination and exclusion that people with disabilities face in all aspects of society aiming in their socio-economical and educational integration and the elimination of the stereotypes and disabled labels. Chrysallis emphasizes in the socialization of people with disabilities by offering them opportunities for life long learning, support and knowledge in new technologies. The knowledge and experience of Chrysallis members on disability issues provides guidelines and suggestions for the best interest of people with disabilities focusing on new research and educational methods, accessibility issues, equality, independence as well as good practices.

Our activities are to

create and provide fully accessible e-Learning courses that will enhance the socio-economical and educational level of people with disabilities.

contribute in the development of new accessible technologies.

contribute in the development of safe and accessible web content.

survey the usability and accessibility of technological products and services.

provide psychological support to people with disabilities and to their families.

provide consultancy in respect to disability issues.

We believe in a translational environment where good practices would be established and hence enrich the knowledge and abilities of people with and without disabilities.

Chrysallis is a non-profit and voluntary organization based in Athens, Greece, that strives to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. We work against the discrimination and exclusion that people with disabilities face in society.
