International Disability and Development Consortium Event: Say YES to Inclusion!
On the 23rd of January the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) launched the IDDC European Elections statement, hosting an event in collaborations with members of the EU parliament. Several MEPs took the podium to sign the statement and express their commitment to inclusive development cooperation (MEPs Bart Staes (Belgium), Michael Cashman (UK), Filip Kaczmarek (Poland) and Marian Harkin (Ireland)). The event included a video from the campaign "End inclusion – Let's enable the Millennium Development Goals" a three year awareness raising project funded by the European Union, implemented by several European organisations (Licht für die Welt (Austria), Light for the World (Netherlands), Svetlo pro Svet (Czech Republic), The Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development (NL) and eRko (Slovakia)).
The EU says YES to inclusion! In education, we are committed to participation in meaningful learning for all. See the EU developed briefing paper on inclusive education.
