Welcome to MyRights seminar “10 years to go: Disability Inclusion in the 2030 Agenda”!

10 December 1-3 PM CET on MyRights YouTube channel. You will find the seminar through this link

The successes of recent decades have not reached persons with disabilities. They continue to lag behind in socio-economic measurements such as prosperity, health status and the opportunity for participation in society. They are still among the most marginalized and are subject to widespread discrimination at all levels of society. Girls and women with disabilities are the most disadvantaged.

But a change is possible and there are many good examples to be inspired by.

Welcome to an inspiring film seminar with a clear message: We can change the situation, but decisive action is needed and we all need to speed up the work.

Akiko Ito, Chief of the United Nations Secretariat for the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,
