Conference - "Shaping the EU agenda for disability rights 2020-2030"

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 Brussels, Belgium

The European Economic and Social Committee is pleased to invite you to a conference on "Shaping the EU agenda for disability rights 2020-2030".

The aim of the conference is to present the EESC's proposal for the new strategy at a crucial moment in the EU landscape. With a new European Commission, a new European Parliament and a new budget programming period, it is now the perfect timing for a new Disability Strategy that fully takes into account the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCPRD), the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The conference will tackle various areas of work of the EU, drawing attention to the crosscutting character of disability rights.

We hope you will be able to join us! A formal invitation will follow shortly.

For any questions related to the event please contact Valeria Atzori by e-mail or by telephone (+32(0)2 546 87 74).

N.B.: The European Economic and Social Committee does not cover participants' travel and subsistence costs.
