#YellowTheWorld is an awareness campaign initiated by NoisyVision, with the aim to promote the mobility of the visually impaired.
We want to spread awareness and understanding of low vision and problems related to eye disease, with particular attention to accessibility facilitation of mobility.
#YellowTheWorld focuses on potentials and on how to overcome limitations.
Dario Sorgato is the founder of NoisyVsion. He has organized the workshop The Visionary Europe with the support of the European Union in which 16 young adults joined together in Berlin in 2013. Dario has a massive interest in travelling and has travelled extensively himself. He thrives on adventures and tries to face every challenge life throws at him in a positive light.
A campaign close to his heart was when he promoted the message of #YellowTheWorld in person in a physically gruelling and ambitious expedition to Everest Base Camp in March 2015. By doing this he achieved his personal goal to flood the world with yellow.
Donato Di Pierro, curator of the project Stargardt … and around, and member of the board of Retina Italia Onlus , walked from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Sea to raise funds for the research on Hereditary Retinal dystrophies .
For this unique experience, Dario and Donato joined forces to offer others the opportunity to live an adventure that has something extraordinary , since it can not be anything but … divine !
