Altigliss wants his event to be more than a student meeting : the association want to promote essential subjects like the handisport. The goal is to sensitize the participants to the accessibility of slide sports for everybody, by differents ways.
The disabled sports day
During the GEM Altigliss day, one association is present on the village in order to make the students sensitive to the handisport around a stand. For the fifteen edition, monitors from the handisport Savoie Committee have moved with their equipment and have organized wheelchair handiski raids for a hundred participants.
The disabled sports trophy
It’s a competition open to all participants which put you in situation of disability. This year, students skied down the cross country ski trail by two : one blindfolded and the other telling where he had to go. They could realize the feelings of blind skiing and the reality of the disability.
Otherwise, the GEM Altigliss Challenge is sponsored each year by a professional skier, like for instance Yohann Tablet, olympic champion and disabled sports sponsor of the XVth edition.
National representation of the active student community in the disability field, the Fédération Étudiante pour une Dynamique Études et Emploi avec un Handicap (Student Federation for Education and Employment Dynamics with Handicap) supports a national rollout of a social network of disabled young people and a network of student associations dedicated to disability. With the help of members of its Technical Council (specialized structures, higher education institutions and experts), the association mobilizes and supports its volunteer students in the action set-up for the success of young disabled people: tutoring high school students, sponsorship to employment, socialization, opinion campaign, consultation and meeting with employers.
The FÉDÉEH reveals its empowerment culture through animation of its support network based on peer support between young disabled people and their active participation in its governance.
