We are still delighted about the great response to the European Inclusion Summit 2020 that we were able to host as a virtual event during the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Interested parties from more than 30 countries participated on 17 November 2020 to exchange ideas and jointly discuss the European Accessibility Act, the protection of women and children with disabilities against violence, digitalisation and inclusive development cooperation.

As part of the virtual High-Level Meeting on 18 November 2020, the EU Member States’ representatives of the interests of persons with disabilities adopted a joint declaration, providing input for the European Disability Strategy 2020-2030. Jürgen Dusel subsequently handed this joint declaration on to the Commissioner for Equality of the European Commission, Helena Dalli.

Please find a short film compilation of the two days summit in English including International Sign and English subtitles.
