A film entitled “Snoezelen – A World of Sense” (a multisensory way to create contact with persons with special needs) will be presented.

Many other themes are part of the program including the challenging issue of immigration in Europe and a final panel about concrete examples of PCE in management and leadership.

Through this diverse program, we wish to present rich experience with PCE applications in changing specific environments, and beyond to use the space created to stress the potential of PCE to change the world on all possible levels in a way Rogers used to be criticized as being naive.
