Shaping the EU agenda for disability rights 2020-2030
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will hold a conference to shape the new 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 (SDGs) 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.
