Making development inclusive – seminar 23 May

Time: 09:00-12:00 (Registration from 08:30)
Venue: Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Skanstull, Ringvägen 98, Stockholm
Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 16th.
Discrimination and lack of access mean that disability often leads to poverty, and measures to reduce poverty rarely or never reach persons with disabilities. How can development actors ensure the inclusion and development of persons with disabilities?
Through examples from different areas this seminar aims to give an overview on the effects of working for rights of persons with disabilities, and contribute to a more disability-inclusive development.
At the seminar you will learn how to become a more inclusive organisation and how you can start up or extend your cooperation work with disability organisations. Stories, lessons learned and best practices will be shared, as well as facts about the situation for persons with disabilities around the world.
Welcome to an important and inspiring seminar!
