Weder Held noch „Hascherl“ (Interview mit Kira Grünberg)

Die Selbstbestimmung von Menschen mit Behinderungen ist ein zentraler Aspekt einer inklusiven Gesellschaft, die Vielfalt und Gleichberechtigung fördert.

Gesetzliche Vertretung (Sachwalterschaft) im Fürstentum Liechtenstein (Interview mit Philipp Hanschitz)

Der Sachwalterverein ist ein privatrechtlicher Verein, der die gesetzliche Vertretung und Förderung der Interessen von volljährigen Personen mit psychischer Erkrankung oder geistiger Behinderung bezweckt. Der Verein ist von der Regierung des Fürstentums Liechtenstein beauftragt, Aufgaben im Bereich der Sachwalterschaft (ehemals Vormundschaft) zu übernehmen. Der Sachwalterverein wird dann zum Sachwalter, zur Sachwalterin einer Person bestellt, wenn keine geeignete nahestehende Person für diese Aufgabe zur Verfügung steht oder wenn mit der Sachwalterschaft spezielle Anforderungen verbunden sind.   Kann eine volljährige Person trotz geistiger Behinderung oder psychischer Krankheit ihre Angelegenheiten selbst meistern – etwa mit Hilfe ihrer Familie, mit Hilfe von Pflegeeinrichtungen oder Einrichtungen der Behindertenhilfe oder im Rahmen sozialer oder psychosozialer Dienste – darf kein Sachwalter bestellt werden. Dasselbe gilt auch, wenn die betroffene Person von einem nächsten Angehörigen oder Vorsorgebevollmächtigten ausreichend vertreten werden kann. Nähere Informationen und gesetzliche Grundlagen sind auf unserer Website zu finden: https://www.sachwalterverein.li/ Hinterlassen Sie gerne eine Rezension zu dieser Sendung und folgen Sie dieser Sendung auf: Instagram: https://instagram.com/atelierfuralle?igshid=OGQ5ZDc2ODk2ZA%3D%3D&utm_source=qr Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61551850785306 Snapchat: https://t.snapchat.com/adJV9quN Discord: https://discord.gg/XsZZ42NU

From Activist to Malta’s representative for disability at the UN (feat. Samantha Pace Gasan)

Malta’s my favourite country on earth. From megalithic temples that are older than the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, the Acropolis and Newgrange.  The fact that it’s a tiny archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean leads Malta to having one of the best climates in Europe. It’s also Europe’s safest country (EU membership since 1 May 2004 and Eurozone membership since 1 January 2008, officially replacing the Maltese Lira aka Pound and is officially bilingual with Maltese (the only Semitic language in the EU) and English being the two official languages. Malta combines everything I love about both Australia and Switzerland and takes out the bad parts. Honestly I hoped to write a song about everything I love about this country.  From crosses, knights, the awesomely named “Pharaoh Hound, Maltese Dogs to Twistiees, Pastizzi (a type of savory pastry filled with either ricotta cheese or curried peas), the first-rate incredible national anthem “L-Innu Malti” (The Maltese Hymn) the 1956 referendum on whether the archipelago would be formally join the UK as a constituent country in which 77.0% of voters voted in favour of full integration as a part of the UK to Robert Abela, another shining example of a leader being a true human rights respecting changemaker. Other notable historical figures include former Prime Minister Dom Mintoff who was PM when the 1956 referendum was held, the Knights Hospitaler who founded Valletta, Malta's modern capital and largest city in the 16th century and Sir Anthony Mamo (1909-2008) the last Governor-General of the State of Malta (a Commonwealth Realm with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state which he was the Governor-General of from 5 July 1971-13 December 1974) and the first President of the Republic of Malta (13 December 1974-27 December 1976).  Join me and Samantha Pace Gasan, the Commissioner for the Rights of Persons with Disability at the Maltese Commission on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities as we explore the advancements in disability rights in the shining gem of a nation and the role that he/she/they played in advancing the understanding and acceptance of disability in the Magnificent Mediterranean Marvel of Malta.  Prime Minister Robert Abela met someone with a disability on 2 December 2020: https://tvmnews.mt/en/news/person-with-a-disability-spends-the-day-with-pm/  Prime Minister Abela proposes annual increase for those supporting people with disabilities: https://tvmnews.mt/en/news/pm-proposes-e4250-increase-annually-for-those-caring-for-persons-with-severe-disability/  Learn about the Maltese Commission for the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Maltese Federation of Organizations of Persons with Disability:  CRPD:  https://www.crpd.org.mt/  MFOPD:  https://www.edf-feph.org/our-members/malta-federation-of-organisations-of-persons-with-disability/  Check out the Atelier Für Alle disability-oriented art program: https://www.atelierfuralle.org  If you have any questions about this episode, please send them to: [email protected]

A HUGE THANK YOU!!! to Scotland: One of My Most Important Audiences

I understand this may seem extremely trivial but this morning I witnessed a massive spike in plays from a country which doesn't often listen to my podcast. Scotland is my favourite UK constituent country (my sincerest apologies England, Wales and Northern Ireland) because of my family's ancestral connection to the country. Additionally the country's what in my opinion are the best accents, the best food options, the best coat of arms design (although the award for best flag design goes to Wales) in the UK. Please listen to my other episodes on Scotland: My connection to Scotland: https://anchor.fm/dashboard/episode/elc60h Disability in Scotland (one of my favourite episodes): https://anchor.fm/dashboard/episode/elc60f  Check out the Atelier Für Alle disability-oriented art program: https://www.atelierfuralle.org If you are from Scotland would like to reach out please use the following address: [email protected] Please leave a review of this show.

Promoting and Raising Awareness of LGBTQ+ Rights and Combating Ableism, (Featuring Joel/Vanora Molberg)

In recent years we've seen two things, an increase in homophobic attitudes and the lack of discussion about "Ableism" aka disability discrimination. Joel Moberg aka "Vanora" is a member of both the disability and LGBTQ+ communities and has undertaken various projects to raise awareness about the rights of both LGBTQ people and people with disabilities. In this episode he and I are going to explore how disability can be used as a unifying tool when it comes to raising awareness about various social justice issues and learn what it's like to learn about what it's like to explore one's own gender and identity while also living with a disability.

Wie das Bruttosozialglück zur Bruttosozialinklusivität in Bhutan führen kann

Bhutan ist ein Land wie kein anderes. Es ist ein hochbuddhistisches Königreich in der Vogelbeobachtung Indiens und Chinas, das erst 1974 seine Grenzen öffnete und 1999 Fernsehen und Internet einführte. Seit 1974 arbeitet das Land unter einem System des Bruttosozialglücks, das das allgemeine Wohlbefinden und die Qualität von Indien und China misst Das Leben der Bürger und nicht die gesamtwirtschaftliche Leistung als Zeichen der Entwicklung. In dieser Folge untersuchen wir, wie dieses System zu einer besseren Lebensqualität von Menschen mit Behinderungen beitragen kann und wie das Bruttosozialglück zur Bruttosozialinklusivität führen kann. Nur damit Sie wissen, dass ich in diese Folge nicht wie in der englischen Version über die bhutanische Geschichte gesprochen habe, da ich im Geschichts-Podcast eine Folge dazu machen werde.
