We are delighted to invite you to this webinar on “Enhancing Disability Inclusive Practices in Humanitarian Action and Volunteer Management: Overview of a Collaborative Approach” as part of the VIVID Project: Technical Assistance in Humanitarian Response, Ensuring Valuable International Volunteering and Inclusion of persons with Disabilities.

The main aim of the project is to create a community of practice made up of EU organisations working towards disability inclusion in humanitarian action and volunteering. The focus of this webinar is to share examples of collaborative practices to ensure inclusion in humanitarian action and volunteer management.

This webinar will present European Union’s Humanitarian Strand including the overview and transition to European Solidarity Corps. Then, a presentation and overview of the VIVID Project will be shared, followed by the experience of volunteering for persons with disabilities.
