Inclusion: In focus at REHAB
At REHAB 2021, successful local inclusion projects are awarded the Karlsruher Inklusionspreis (Karlsruhe Inclusive Price) for the first time
At REHAB 2021, which will take place from May 6 to 8 at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, the topic of inclusion will be examined with regard to various fields of social action: from the promotion and care of children and young people to training and further education, jobs and cultural participation. At the inclusive sports complex, people with and without disabilities can try out various inclusive sports activities together and train with professionals. The exhibitors offer products and services that increase independence and enable participation.
For the first time, local, successful inclusion projects will be honored at REHAB 2021: On May 7 at the trade fair, the city of Karlsruhe will award the Karlsruher Inklusionspreis (Karlsruhe Inclusion Prize) to individuals, companies and associations that are committed to reducing disadvantages for people with disabilities or handicaps and overcoming prejudices. "As a European trade fair for rehabilitation, therapy, care and inclusion, REHAB has always been a platform for the presentation of successful inclusion projects and thus offers the ideal framework for the recognition of exemplary inclusion. The Karlsruher Inklusionspreis (Karlsruhe Inclusion Prize) clearly shows how many Karlsruhe citizens and institutions are committed to helping people with disabilities. Their successful projects as well as the city's commitment to an inclusive society will be made visible to a broad public by the awarding of the prize at REHAB," explains Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe.
