Siden 1992 har man I hele verden d. 3. december fejret FNs handicapdag – International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Formålet med dagen er at formidle viden om problemstillinger på handicapområdet, og mobilisere politisk og social anerkendelse af at personer med funktionsnedsættelse skal have mulighed for at leve et liv med lige rettigheder og mulighed for trivsel.

Dagen søger også at øge bevidstheden om de gevinster, der opnås ved integration af personer med funktionsnedsættelse i alle aspekter af det politiske, sociale, økonomiske og kulturelle liv.

Mange organisationer, uddannelsesinstitutioner i hele verden markerer i år dagen ved at afholde konferencer og webinarer.

Vi har samlet et par af dem her.
