On July 5 and 6, partners met in Brussels (Belgium) to hold the last transnational partners meeting where we could review the project and organise the next steps. Also, the Final Conference took place in the European Economic and Social Committee and we counted with Ana Sofia Antunes, Secretary of State for Inclusion from Portugal.
After 3 years working together to develop the YMI project, the final conference have taken place in Brussels at the European Economic and Social Committee.
YMI partners presented the European guides and app, the two main outcomes of the YMI project. We could also get first-hand testimonies from mediators, autistic people and their families that have already tested the tools. It was clear that the figure of a mediator is key for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the society. We would like to thank European Disability Forum, Inclusion Europe and European Platform for Rehabilitation for contributing to the conversation! Also, thanks to all the participants, both online and on-site, for their interest. We encourage you to stay tuned and check YMI Facebook page and website to know more about both the European guides and the app!
