4-5 December: European Days of Persons with Disabilities

On 4 and 5 December 2017, the European Commission in collaboration with EDF, will organise a conference to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3 December). This year's conference will focus on citizenship and on a fairer social Europe, thus the rights of EU citizens being exercised through diverse European initiatives and the question of political participation will be discussed. In addition, the possibility of living in a fairer and more inclusive environment will be addressed.

Time will be reserved for interactive discussions to exchange views among participants.

At the conference, the Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Ms Marianne Thyssen, will announce the winners of the 2018 Access City Award, a competition that rewards cities’ efforts to ensure an accessible environment for all.

More information will be published on the European Commission's website and EDF's closer to the date.

One day after, on 6 December 2017, there is another big event: the 4th European Parliament of Persons with Disabilities (EPPD). Find out more about the EPPD on EDF's website.
