Images of climate innovation

Breaking down barriers to inclusion

This image symbolises the struggle of those with disabilities feeling trapped in a society that doesn’t fully accept them. With the highest prevalence of albinism in the world (40%), our research is focussing on Malawian youngsters with the condition. Through exploration of how they negotiate and cope with exclusion within their families, communities and systems, we aim to ensure greater inclusion for all within society by critically challenging existing disability policies and practice.
