It is a unique moment in the European Union. For the first time, having ratified the EU and all its Member States the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the European Commission has released the European Disability Rights Strategy 2021-2030.
The European Parliament, and particularly the Disability Intergroup, was instrumental in the call for an ambitious Disability Rights Strategy firmly based on the UN CRPD and with clear proposals aiming at improving the situation of persons with disabilities across the EU.
The European Commission has delivered the Strategy and now it is time to hold a first discussion about the outlined actions and objectives. The Disability Intergroup invites disability organisations, activists, experts and all EU institutions and national authorities to come together to exchange their views and set the Strategy in motion.
This webinar will provide international sign interpretation and real-time captioning in English.
