More about the Green Enough project
The Green Enough project aims to empower adults and adolescents with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities to adopt more sustainable practices with the support of an innovative augmented reality app.
Taking into account the environmental situation at present, the rise of temperatures and all the consequences of climate change, the project recognizes that persons with disabilities are not only more vulnerable to the crisis we face but tend to be left off the conversations around environmental protection as well.
The project’s objective is to:
- Develop and implement a set of training materials for professionals working with people with D.D./I.D that will enable professionals to educate people with D.D./I.D on environmental topics.
- Create an Augmented Reality Application that will help beneficiaries to understand basic principles around recycling.
- Publish an easy-to-read guide on using the Augmented Reality Application.
- Raise awareness for climate change and the need for ecological behaviour for individuals with D.D./I.D. and their caregivers.
The project ran for 24-months and directly benefits professionals working with people with disabilities, including psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and special educators.
