We invite everyone to join our nature walk for Erasmus+ Project Pancake where we will showcase the official signs created by the Deaf community for local flora. After the presentation, we will enjoy the guided walk of Majjistral Park followed by vegetarian refreshments and snacks organised by us. Each registered participant will also receive a sweet complimentary nature gift from the project. Please find the registration form below. Registration will be open till 27th April.
Friends of the Earth (Malta) is currently coordinating a 3-year ERASMUS+ Project with 5 partners from Malta, Spain, Italy and UK bringing together associations of the deaf and nature organisations with the support of an interactive content-sharing online platform.
The aim of the Project is to improve the inclusion of the Deaf community in accessing nature, augment knowledge about flora and design inclusive public spaces through 5 innovative actions. These will include the enhancement of five national sign languages by creating a sign for plants which are found in the four countries, creating videos to learn the new signs and short sign language documentaries, a manual of best architectural practices for inclusion and accessibility in public spaces and the adaptation of the material into online interactive content for dissemination.
Please keep in mind that participants are to take care of their own safety during the event. Make sure to have sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, comfortable shoes and water with you.

About Project PANCAKE:
As part of the Project PANCAKE (Plants and Nature Conveying Augmented Knowledge for Everyone) we are looking at a number of plant species chosen together with the deaf communities in Malta, Italy, Spain and UK to create new signs for plants which until now had never been described in sign language.
