The TIDE Project takes centre stage at an inclusive education event in Salzburg

The TIDE project resource pack was launched at an inclusive education event held by EASPD in Salzburg by Gerraint Jones-Griffiths.

As the   TIDE project  (Towards Inclusive Development Education) draws to an end, members of the Learning Disability Wales' team along with Gerraint Jones-Griffiths, a young person who took part in the project, travelled to Salzburg to showcase the project outcomes.

The closing conference of the TIDE project was organised by the  European Association of Service Providers for Persons with a Disability (EASPD), with more than 350 attending. During the egent, Learning Disability Wales and Gerraint shared the resources and outcomes from the inclusive development education project.

Gerraint took the delegates through the TIDE project manifesto that was produced by young people working on the project. After learning about various development issues young people chose to highlight five priorities to make up their manifesto for change.

Having presented their manifesto to European Parliament earlier in the year Gerriant was positive that the TIDE project resources would ensure that other young people with a learning disability have an opportunity to engage and learn about development issues across the globe that affect them and other young people. The event was a great success with members of our team running workshops and presenting in the main plenary.
