The 32nd Belgrade Ignite “Get Involved 3” event, dedicated to marking the International Day of Combating Poverty and the Issue of Social Inclusion, was held on 29 October 2015, at the premises of Impact Hub in Belgrade. Ten excellent and inspirational speakers have once again, with interpretation into sign language and in an accessible space, presented what social inclusion means for them through five-minute presentations. Thus the audience could learn: what life is like in Serbia with HIV/AIDS; whether our society accepts persons who have changed their sex; is movement using a wheelchair an obstacle for active life; how to build a home for one’s family with one’s own hands; how to get a job you love through self-employment; how music can help empower youth; how every one of us can help the refugees passing through Serbia; how inclusive education can support the professional development of persons with autism; whether we can lead an active life after 60 years of age.
The 32nd Belgrade Ignite “Get Involved 3” is the third organized by the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the association “Serbia in Motion”.
