Description
Aim of the event: 
  • Make ESN Accessible
Goal of the event: 
To raise awareness among international students about how adapted life, bars or streets are for people who use a wheelchair in our city. Also to let the locals show a little bit more about our culture to the international students.
Short description of the event: 
Our first idea was to do some challenges by teams formed both by Erasmus and disabled people around the city centre and to raise awareness about which bars or streets are adapted or not (that is why the tittle was "Adapted gymkana"). The idea was to have like a competition which included culture, pictures and that could raise awareness at the same time. However, the rain was very strong, so we decided to go to a bar, share some drinks and food and talk and get to know each other better. We are planning to do more activities in collaboration with this assosiation in the future.
How did your event go?: 
At the beginning we were sad because we could not do the activity fully due to the heavy rain, but then the conversation and sociable talks were great :)
