Not only a symposium. On the 20 June ARFIE and Les Genets d’Or have organised a series of interesting visits and workshops to different structures in the Finistère Region to discover the French system of employment for people with disabilities and discuss the best practices among the various European partners. The event, which will be followed by the ARFIE General Assembly and a friendly dinner, will be also the occasion to discuss and reflect on the subject, and consider a possible options for future European partnerships.
