To enjoy nature can be challenging for disabled people. In order to promote universal access to our natural heritage, we develop this programme. Thanks to many volunteers we organize environmental education activities and trekking with Joëlette, an adapted chair designed to allow disabled people visit natural areas.
We organise routes with Joëlette and courses to train volunteers in the correct use, maintenance and driving of these chairs. The programme is being implemented since 2013 in collaboration with the association “Montaña para Todos”.
We hold regular courses and visits in natural areas. For several years we have implemented the “Nature for all in Natural Parks” in Picos de Europa, Teide and Monfragüe. This project is supported by the Volunteering Programme in National Parks included in the Awareness Raising and Volunteering Plan of the National Parks Entity that belongs to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Environment.
More than 200 people have been trained and more than 40 visits have been organised, thanks to which more than 80 disabled people have been able to enjoy nature in a different way.
