The past events
The camp was originally intended as an Austrian educational event, but it soon turned out that the camp attracted extreme attention all over Europe, the USA and Japan. A team of national coordinators was created; its members manage the participation of students from different countries. At the beginning, the Czech Republic was represented in this coordinating team by the Grammar School and Business Academy for the Blind (dr. Wanda Gonzúrová) together with Tereza – Support Centre for blind students at CVUT (Ing. Ondřej Fránek).
From 2001, the Teiresias Centre has been the Czech national coordinator of the ICC.
