In Spring we realized that it was impossible to organize the short students’ exchange in May because of Covid so we decided to organize it online.
Obviously we were obliged to organize it in different days, 3 days were devoted to workshops during which students, divided in 4 mixed groups, worked in separate Zoom rooms in order to plan and organize the activities and 2 days were devoted to conferences open to the public on YouTube for the dissemination.
Our aim was to change people’s attitude towards disability and to make the more aware of the problems related to adapted sports.
