The Contribution of Sport as a Means of Inclusion in Discussions of Sustainable Development for Visually Disabled People

This study investigated how high-performance sport improved the quality of life and facilitated the inclusion of blind athletes in discussions about sustainable development at the Benjamin Constant Institute. It was also revealed that the blind still face discrimination, and that society associates the blind's visual disabilities with their other characteristics.
