The first time I was with the problems of people with disabilities met in elementary school
when I'm in the class had a friend who was suffering from autism. Therefore, I believe that your arrival, lecture and film that I saw a very good thing to give people's attention to this complex issue. Although I have a very busy, very happy I could find the time and visited the projections Bosifest.
Dragana Kojic, a student of the Faculty of Science, Department of Geography, Tourism and Hotel
I am in my environment I have people with disabilities, and I am aware of this issue. I think that this topic can not be neglected and "swept under the rug." On the contrary, the one constant we need to talk and to educate people. Today's lecture and screening of the film are a good way to do it. With a special look forward to the start of the Festival and I hope to be able to see him, even though I live in Novi Sad.
Galičić Filip, a student of the Faculty of Science, Department of Geography, Tourism and Hotel
I have a friend who is a person with disabilities. He had an accident that he fell on the stairs, injured spine and remained confined to a wheelchair. He is young, is 27 years old and his life changed in seconds. So, it's good for people to understand that disability is not "something that happens to others," in that context i like the lecture, because among other, points to this. Traveling around the world I've seen how society are responsible for persons with disabilities and the extent to which efforts to make their life easier. Unfortunately, in our country this is not the case. I think we should keep this class for the parents so that they transferred this knowledge to their children. In this way, I think that children who are taught from an early age about the problem become better people, and therefore the society would have been better.
Goran Janjatović, student, Faculty of Science, Department of Geography, Tourism and Hotel
Unfortunately, our society is very little aware of the problems of people with disabilities. So I think we should organize a large number of lectures and workshops, especially those in which the present persons with disabilities. There must be a direct contact between them so that people understand this topic. Unfortunately, this is not present enough in the media. I have to admit that your arrival today left a strong impression on me. Also, I believe that Bosifest is right way to inform the public about this topic.
The Belgian film "You have a handicap" and the lecture on Disabled Persons (PWD) marked the promotion of Bosifest, held at the beginning of June in front of Sabac high school students.
