WoW
WHEELS ON WAVES

COME ON BOARD WITH US!

 

 

Mission

The object of WoW - Wheels on Waves, is to promote the rights of disabled people in the world, by crossing the ocean on board of the catamaran "Lo Spirito di Stella" - the first in the world to be fully accessible to disabled people -, and taking the ONU Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities from Miami to Rome, from the ONU General Secretary to Pope Francis.

The expedition

"Lo Spirito di Stella" will cross the ocean in 19 different legs from Miami to Venice, with as many crew teams, who will board the vessel one after the other, as a representation of the world and its diversity. The expedition will begin in May 2017 with the collection from the hands of the UN Secretary General of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and will end in Venice in October 2017.
The trip aims to be the sounding board to make known this very important document and contribute the removal of architectural barriers, but above all mental restricting the rights of the people, even though they are disabled.
