Our project, GreeNet has succeeded in getting European funding!

The Association of Parents, Guardians and Friends of People with Intellectual Disabilities “To Ergastiri” hosted the Kick-Off Meeting.

The main goal of our project is to develop an innovative curriculum in the field of adult education and vocational training for people with intellectual disabilities (PID).

The project will aim at the creation of a complete Adult Gardener (PID) program with particular emphasis on the use of assistive technology. By the end of the project, participants with intellectual disabilities will have acquired certified knowledge of gardening, increased their digital skills and will work with greater autonomy.

The project will provide an opportunity for Professionals in the field of disability, who will work actively with gardeners with IDs, to obtain an ECVET certification specifically designed from the outset to meet their professional needs.

On Monday and Tuesday, November 18th and 19th, 2019, our organization hosted the Kick-Off meeting of our consortium.
