European Days of Persons with Disabilities 2019: launch of SkixAll guidelines
28 November 2019 // After two years of work, the SkixAll project is coming to an end and today we are happy to announce that the final version of the guidelines is ready. Today is the perfect occasion to launch it: the European Days of Persons with Disabilities (EDPD), whose theme for 2019 is ‘sport for all’.
With the creation of the guidelines, ‘Ski For All’ project’s partners and participants will promote the physical activities of children with and without disabilities. Through a rich and professional methodology teachers, technicians and coaches will get the qualification required to accommodate the needs of young people with disabilities, involving all the students.
Mainstream sports have become more and more accessible to people with physical disabilities, yet countries that have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities should actively promote the participation of persons with disabilities in sports. The ‘Ski For All’ project wants to support countries in this obligation, by introducing their guidelines with best practices, and practical examples and suggestions on ski techniques, for students, ski coaches and school teachers.
