DisABILITIES Civic LAB
DisABILITIES Civic LAB is an online compendium of scenarios build by YWwD in those workshops in Romania, Greece and Spain. In this way young women with disabilities are co-creators of an innovative tool that could be used as a source of inspiration for other vulnerable women. Compedium has 2 main parts:

a) 14 scenarios build by YWwD;

b) apart from these scenarios based on the real obstacles/problems of YWwD, the compendium also contains the practical guidelines for practitioners: what means a scenario, how to build one, what elements to include, what techniques can be used, tips to increase the level of involvement of young people in the construction of a scenario.
