Stories4ALL is a project that aims to support the educational community by combining elements of inclusion, creativity and digital technologies, such as image design, editing, digital story creation tools and 3D printing. The idea is to explore alternative learning pathways designing educational materials appropriate for students with visual impairments, focused on developing creativity and digital skills, fostering feelings of solidarity and inclusiveness.
In recent years, the share of young people not in education, employment, or training (NEETs) has shown a remarkable increase in many European countries, such as Italy, Greece, Spain and Bulgaria. The wide diffusion of NEETs represents an alarming social issue, as being NEET predisposes young people to long-term unemployment and social exclusion (EUROSTAT, 2019). More specifically, unemployment is generally higher among young people than prime age adults, and those who do work tend to have poorer-quality jobs and are much more likely to be on temporary contracts or to earn low wages than older workers. Moreover, young people with disabilities are twice as possible to be in a NEET situation as their peers without disabilities.
