An annual series of events and activities by university students for raising awareness on AT, AAC and Accessibility for schools and the public in Cyprus. Activities have different formats and modalities, and they take place either at the university (European University Cyprus) premises or on site in different places in the country.

Accessibility awareness in children is not really included in the school curriculum, which has been in criticized for maintaining a charity model of disability. Thus, this series of events places emphasis in raising awareness among children and schools as well as for the general public.

Each time activities vary from observing and acknowledging barriers to issues of co-design and participation.
