The Azores - ALL IN BLUE project was born with the aim of providing the world with another territory that recognizes, accepts and includes Autism, this time in the middle of the Atlantic between Europe and America.

This project is absolutely focused on the need to provide all families that deal with this reality with the opportunity to choose a tourism experience that can afford them unique leisure moments and maximize their quality of life, while reducing the isolation and the social and family impact that Autism introduces into their daily lives. It results from the efforts of the CDIJA and the AÇOREANA DMC to raise the awareness of all the economic stakeholders involved in generating value for Azorean tourism for the importance of creating the necessary conditions for this to also be the case in the Azores.

To be successful, this mission needs the help of all of those who can contribute to a change in mindset, allowing us to achieve an inclusive and balanced society that creates opportunities for the participation, development and fulfilment of all children, young people and their families in leisure and well-being activities.

Take this opportunity to help us by filling out the questionnaire.
