Exciting two days at the Include³ Project Partners Meeting in Eupen, Belgium hosted by adult education center VHS Bildungsinstitut VoG!

The first day’s session started with delving into the real-world context of the project by visiting BW Eupenthe sheltered workshop which employs people with disabilities who have not yet found their place in the general labor market. They handle customer orders from the areas of packaging, shipment and assembly. Introduction of this good and well working practice in Belgium set the tone for the day, grounding discussions in the practical realities faced by individuals with cognitive disabilities and showcased the possibility for them to live a wholesome lifes.

Further attention turned to the core of the project’s work, as the partners engaged in a focused discussion on the main results of international focus group reports and the implications for the forthcoming guidelines. Moderated by  HdBA (University of Applied Labour Studies of the Federal Employment Agency), this session showcased the collaborative effort of all partners in synthesizing valuable insights.

For lunch the partners visited another one good practice example in Belgium – Tagesstätte Garnstock (En. Garnstock daycare center). This place employs people with a disability and integrates hard-to-place job seekers into the community. The lunch offer is one of the center’s projects – “Mare Nostrum” that offers the sale of pizza, a catering service for private and public celebrations, as well as delicious food in their small restaurant by reservations on workdays.

On the second day the Include³-method was recapped and discussions on curriculum development was carried out. This session marked a significant step towards shaping the educational framework for labor counselors to help them to create an empowering labor environment for individuals with cognitive disabilities and lead them through their journey to sustainable employment.
