The event titled "Educational and Political Spaces for All" will examine the outcomes of two significant initiatives: MILE and UNIVAC.
The primary aim of this event is to present guidelines for improving the accessibility of both online and offline educational and political spaces.
The MILE project (AMIF-2020-AG-CALL-03 101038364) focuses on migrant inclusion in policymaking, striving to identify best practices and guidelines to enhance accessibility for migrants in political and participatory spaces, both online and offline. This study covers four EU cities and offers insights relevant to the broader EU context. The event will unveil the results alongside guidelines for creating accessible political spaces for everyone, whether online or offline.
Meanwhile, UNIVAC (ref. TED2021-130926A-I00) is a Spanish ministry project assessing accessibility needs in higher education for people with sensory disabilities (university students, administrative staff and lecturers). For this event, UNIVAC will explore the challenges and strengths related to providing accessible education within the Metaverse. These initiatives are dedicated to the goal of fostering inclusivity in both digital and physical spaces.
