Abstract:
'At first it was a challenge of scientific communication, now it is a way of life. Making science accessible to people with disabilities holds a potential that goes beyond social responsibility or empathy. It is also about making diversity an integral part of scientific development, incorporating people full of curiosity with new approaches to face problems.rnWe propose to start by reviewing our own perception of disability, giving people with disabilities and people involved in their education and caretaking the opportunity to tell us about it, and by opening our minds to new ways of doing science.rnInclusive astronomy drives us to be creative, to generate networks and to collaborate in an interdisciplinary way. We hope that this initiative will extend to other areas of scientific research.'
