In the Theme Park at the Rybnik campus, an educational path was created to learn how to use a wheelchair and overcome barriers that can be encountered every day in public space, including: stairs, driveways, various types of surfaces.
The track uses a different surface than that usually used by people in wheelchairs. There are paving stones, sand, gravel, and even a surface imitating an alley with protruding tree roots. There are also ramps, stairs with various steps that are very difficult to navigate in a wheelchair, and swinging doors.
Good practice is not only about constructing a place for people in wheelchairs to train. This path also makes other people aware of the barriers that people in wheelchairs encounter and how to skilfully support them in overcoming them.
