Description
Aim of the event: 
  • Raise Awareness
Goal of the event: 
The goal of the event was to raise awareness between the Erasmus, they were dinning without seeing anything so they could feel how is to be blind, the difficulties they need to face every day and also how they should treat them.
Short description of the event: 
We met at our usual meeting point, a famous square and then, we all went to the restaurant. There, we blinded them before the food arrived, using masks that he had bought previously. We helped them to reach the food and figure out what it was. When they needed something, they could raise their hands and we provide them everything they wanted. We talked before with the restaurant and they made special dishes for us. We asked Erasmus if they had any special needs for food, like vegetarian options or allergies, and we took it into account. At the end we talked about their impressions during the dinner.
How did your event go?: 
It was a really nice experience for them. They could experiment how is feel to have a visual disability and take more awareness. Everyone enjoyed the activity.
