Moscow – The Centre for Social Rehabilitation of People with Disabilities and Disabled Children in the Moscow Region of St. Petersburg is implementing a project on adaptive tourism, the press service of the city administration reports. The participants will take part in classes on  tourist training, group psychology  and practical exercises. A one-day camping trip  will also be organised for them.

The adaptive tourism project was developed by specialists from the Centre for Social Rehabilitation of Disabled people and  Children with disabilities in the Moscow Region of St. Petersburg and students from a local university. The project is based on an integrated approach to the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.

The authors of the project focus on the fact that tourism creates an environment for full communication, in which a person establishes social contacts and has the ability to fulfil various social roles. In addition, the use of natural factors in the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities helps to restore impaired body functions and the prevention of various diseases.

Particular attention in the program will be paid to environmental education and safety.
