Can we have a drum roll please! The countdown is almost over, and we are excited, overwhelmed and a little bit relieved (did we let anything slip?) to finally tell you. Tomorrow we can at last reveal the Zero Project 2019 awardees on the topic of Independent Living and Political Participation.
We will be taking you on a tour around the world to see incredible innovations that are helping to change the lives of people with disabilities. We’ll take you to Malawi to find out about more inclusive elections, and to Cambodia to learn about training for women with disabilities as leaders. We’ll be looking at a smart, accessible and sustainable home in Spain, and seeing at how a big red button can connect people with intellectual disabilities to a help centre, in Australia. We’ll also be finding how free guidance and legal assistance is helping Honduras with disabilities, and looking at how people with intellectual disabilities are able to stay in their communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
And many many more.
We are very proud of the diverse range of organisations, projects and contexts that the 2019 awardees come from, and hope you will enjoy learning, sharing and connecting with these incredible projects.
