AAATE ambassadors on Tour

January 31, 2017

Our eight AAATE2017 ambassadors broadly draw on the eight dimensions for people living with disabilities (based on the ICF domains). The aim of the ambassadors is to promote the Congress. To do this, they will go on tour to their godparents and/or research partners. Please contact us so we can post an ambassador to you.

What’s happened so far?…

  Mr Mobility had a great trip to the Peak District, a National Park just a 10 minute drive from Sheffield.
Mr Relationships joined Steve Lee at #CSUN2017 to meet a lot of interesting people!
Master Communication and his guide dog still want to know more about this amazing braille watch!
  Meanwhile, Mrs Relationships stayed in Sheffield with CATCH and spent a glittering evening at the Medilink Awards.
  Lady Social Life found herself an amazing godparent, Roz Davies.
  Lady Domestic felt comfortable in the #CATCHLab as she joined the public exhibition of the lab in the Sheffield Winter Gardens, the venue for the AAATE2017 Conference reception.
   Master Learning visited Microsoft Research with Hector Minto.
Major Life Areas (second box) and Lord Social Life (third box) decided they’d rather go somewhere on holiday, rather than reaching their planned destinations and promoting the Conference!
  Luckily, Major Life Areas’ sister, General Life Areas, will pick up his duties and stay with Evert-Jan Hoogerwerf after an international meeting mid-April.
