The Key to Social Inclusion

17 June 2023

The Youth Exchange School programme (YES), is an inclusive and enriching learning short-mobility experience for students, equipping them with valuable skills, knowledge, and intercultural competencies while promoting the EU’s priority areas and fostering a sense of European identity and cooperation.

Coordinated by the Polytechnic of Leiria, this first summer edition is called ‘Communication – The Key to Social Inclusion’. It aims to provide the attendants with skills and knowledge that foster inclusivity in communication, ensuring accessibility and engagement for all.

Through workshops and debates on accessibility techniques for document design and dissemination, as well as through site visits and shared living experiences, within and outside the learning environment, participants from the different countries of the alliance can learn how to communicate effectively and inclusively.

Together, we can bridge barriers, amplify diverse voices, and foster social inclusion where everyone can participate and be included.
