The all-day event full of workshops with international participation in the project TWCM is behind us. In the Aero cinema, all-day workshops were held both in the foyer and in the main hall. We were delighted with a great interest in the individual blocks coming from the public and the partner NGOs from the Czech Republic and abroad (Hungary, Poland, Germany, Slovakia). A vital role was played by adults with autism – they carried out the task of organization, production and the role of performers just perfectly.

The result of the team's work is a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Mrs. Michaela Marksová, which contained a specific recommendation on what a public awareness campaign funded by public sources should include in order to improve the position of the disadvantaged people in the labor market.

“A debate with people with ASDs → cool!” “I liked it.” “Interesting, inspiring.” “Mr Fr. Mareš’s lecture was phenomenal. To the point, pacey and thrilling. I think we could have stood listening far longer than we did.”
Those are some of the reactions to the meeting at a round table that we held on 8 October 2014 in the Langhans Gallery in the People in Need Centre. The topic was public awareness as an effective instrument for increasing the employment rate of people with health disabilities. And no matter what topic we were dealing with, we were constantly running into the issue of the necessity of choosing substantial information and communicating it to others.
