XVI La Sardina de la Inclusión in La Laguna, a day to make disability visible

This year, in the XVI Edition of La Sardina de la Inclusión (The Sardine of Inclusion), we have complicated circumstances and we have had to reinvent ourselves in order not to stop holding this event that moves so many people. In 2020, shortly before the start of the pandemic, the march through La Laguna gathered some 8,000 people.

Last year the event had to be held virtually and this year's will be similar. Among other things (competitions, conferences, exhibitions...), they are going to make a virtual wall where they want to post the good practices that are carried out in each centre or institution in relation to inclusion.

But … what do we understand by inclusion? An interesting definition can be this:

Inclusion is an approach that responds positively to the diversity of people and individual differences, understanding that diversity is not a problem, but rather an opportunity for the enrichment of society through active participation in family life, in education, at work and in general in all social, cultural and community processes (UNESCO, 2005).
