Actions of the Municipality of Katerini in schools on disability issues

On Thursday 17 and Friday 18 February 2022, The blind lawyer and President of the Non-Profit Organization "With Other Eyes"*, Vangelis Avgoulas, will visit Katerini.

In the context of the visit, the implementation of the educational program for familiarization with disability will take place in schools of the Municipality, with the aim of students to come into experiential contact with the everyday life of a disabled person. Mr. Avgoulas, who was born blind, will talk to the students about the use of the white cane, the guide dog for the blind, the usefulness of new technologies in the life of the blind, the embossed Braille writing and will show techniques of accompanying the blind from a seen guide. Students will be able to freely ask what seems "strange" or "different" to them and together they will discover the concepts of accessibility, diversity and inclusion.
