  • We encouraged a linguistic and cultural

    exchange with the Volunteers during the

    Camp and, then, throughmessages on the social network, sharing photos

    about the most interestinglandscapes

    We created an on-line community that extended

    the existing integrationbetween disabled people

    and young Europeanvolunteers

    Using digital interfaces, a metaemotional lab, theylearned how to recognisetheir own emotions in a controlled environment , such as in a protected

    social network.

    We created a multimedia lab where boys were notonly the final users, but

    the actual maincharacters. They wereable to create contents, uploading photos and

    videos to keep sharingemotion with their

    international friends.

  • Sharing contents on the net with the foreigner volunteers of the International SCI CAMP (Service Civil International) created a

    great friendship, an emotional exchange which positivelyinfluenced on young disabled people, and the creation of a really

    European network, even on Facebook in Italian, English (and Spanish.
