Inclusion Europe member Insieme Switzerland officially kicked off a new PR-campaign, proving that perceptions about people with intellectual disailities can change in as little as five minutes. The PR-campaign was the result of a social experiment undertaken by the Swiss organisation.
The experiment involves a conversation between several pairs of people who never met each other before, each time one of them being a person with an intellectual disability. The other one is not aware of this fact before striking up a conversation. What followed was beautifully filmed and turned into an inspiring video that makes viewers reflect on the position of people with intellectual disabilities within society and the major difference between how people are perceived and who they really are.
Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.
This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.
