About Course

Implementing a mixed peer-learning hike for sighted and visually impaired participants. This will be done during a 2 week hiking trip in the Spring of 2023 (starting from 16 June), during which workshops prepared and led by the youth will take place within the cultural and historic setting of the route locked between the towns of Kozloduy and Vratsa in Bulgaria. This route is famous among Bulgarians and really important for them, because it was the last path which a group of Bulgarian revolutionaries, led by Hristo Botev, took before their final battle, shortly before the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman yoke.

The starting point would be Kozloduy and the final point will be Vratsa. At the end, we will have implemented a peer learning hike with mixed groups of 6 participants (3 sighted and 3 v.i.) from each partner country in the Pitch project – Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Belgium and Italy – implemented in its full complexity with a minimum of 8 workshops and additional trainings (for example on visual awareness, hiking, putting up tents, setting up camps, etc.) with a minimum of 36 participants in total (including 4 representatives of the LARP partner – Loto Fiorito, Sicily – and 2 team members from the leading organization – CuBuFoundation.
