Learn, Inspire, Lead: Inclusion Europe at the World Congress
Registrations are now open.
The delegates will have opportunities to get involved in various sessions labeled Learn, Inspire and Lead.
Inclusion Europe is a partner of the event, ensuring we get a big turnout from Europe and encouraging our network to bring their examples of how the lives of people with intellectual disability and their families have been changed through:
Learning how to do things better
Inspirational successes, new approaches or technologies
Leading change through example, hard-hitting campaigns and strong leadership
Delegates will have opportunities to gain practical know-how and to try out toolkits and resources as well as TED-talk style presentations and workshops for sharing personal and organisational experience of making change happen.
- Robert Martin, the first person with an intellectual disability to sit on a UN Committee
- Catalina Devandas Aguilar, Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities at the UN
- Penny Mordaunt, UK Secretary of State for the Department for International Development

Flavours of European inclusion: celebrating 30 years of learning, working and achieving together
Inclusion Europe will also celebrate its 30th anniversary with an event at the World Congress called „The Flavours of European Inclusion“: Inclusion Europe members will present not only their country’s food, culture and customs, but also their national inclusion achievements during the last 30 years, at tables spread across the room. Participants are invited to discover stories, pictures and objects illustrating how the inclusion movement has moved forward during the last three decades, while tasting delicious national specialties and making new connections. They will learn about successful practices of European collaboration for inclusion (including collaboration between Inclusion Europe and its members) and about partnerships national members have formed with companies, government agencies and funders to advance the cause.
Around 2000 participants are expected for the World Congress, offering a unique opportunity for international networking.
