The LIVES project started with a vision of a perfect inclusive society-
a place where everyone's personality is valued and
every individual is able to work, eat, and laugh together,
regardless of their physical and mental capability.
In order to do so, we must get to know each other.
In 2017, 3000 participants from various backgrounds
helped create a welcoming atmosphere by learning about the situation
that surrounds people with disabilities in our society.
This year, the LIVES team will strive to create opportunities
to collaborate with various members of our community.
From learning about each other to working together,
we will connect ideas that will lead to action,
where everyone can work, eat, and laugh together - as ONE!
