The educational program “Inclusion in Action” is implemented by the Organization Athens International Children’s Film Festival in general and special education schools with the aim of enhancing the culture of inclusion within the school environment. Students, teachers, and educators participate in educational workshops where they learn about available accessibility tools that allow them to experience the common and inclusive cinematic projection. They watch movies that are accessible through SDH subtitles, Greek dubbing, Greek sign language interpretation, audio description, sensory processing, and social stories

The program “Inclusion in Action”, which runs throughout the school year, is made possible through the donation of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, while the design and methodology followed are the result of collaboration with the accessibility and inclusion consultants liminal and TheHappyAct. Throughout its implementation, the program is evaluated by the instructors of the Department of Primary Education at the University of Athens, Maria Dimaki-Zora, Assistant Professor of Theater Studies, Konstantina Tsoli, Assistant Professor of School Pedagogy and Practical Training, and Elisavet Lazarakou, Assistant Professor of Learning Process Evaluation.
