The Conference “TOWARDS COMMUNITY LIVING: current realities & future challenges” will take place in Skopje (fYR of Macedonia) on the 7-8 October 2010.
The general goal of the conference will be to facilitate the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in society, in the light of the UN convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
It will be achieved by enriching the discussion with the variety of situations from all regions of Europe, as we believe that mutual learning is a key for success. Speakers and participants from all parts of the Continent will have the opportunity to share their experience and build networks at all levels. It should enable them to better understand their differences, but also to potentially pave the way for a common vision of how to concretely contribute to the improvement of living conditions for persons with disabilities.
The discussions will be based on:
The specific situation of stakeholders involved in the Disability sector in the different regions of Europe and the challenges they are facing
The wish to promote, facilitate and enhance cooperation practices among stakeholders of the Disability sector
The international policies and texts relevant for the sector
Who should attend?
Professionals, service providers
People with disabilities and their families
