Together Towards an Inclusive Future: Strategies and Solutions

“We need more inclusion” – a sentence everyone likes to say and hear. But why do almost half of the people with disabilities live in poverty because they are unemployed or working in workshops where you earn €1 per hour? Why are there still separate schools and free-time facilities? Where is the political representation of people with disabilities? Even though there are binding laws, things don’t seem to improve much in the EU.

We’ll talk about this with Katrin Langensiepen, a Green MEP. She is the first and only MEP with a visible disability in the European Parliament and wants to make sure that those who have no political representation are not forgotten.

What changes do we need to ensure true inclusion and what is the real state of inclusion in the EU? Join us to discuss and to ask your questions about this critical topic.
