Inclusion Europe holds two regular big conferences:

Europe in Action


Hear our Voices

We also organise regular leadership trainings.


Europe in Action

Every year for 3 days, self-advocates, support persons,
family members and professionals
address different aspects of a certain topic
in a city across Europe.

In 2018 we took part in the World Congress of Inclusion International.

It was co-organised by our member mencap.

In 2019, Europe in Action will take place from 5-7 June in Vilnius, Lithuania.


Hear our Voices


EPSA organises a bi-annual conference for self-advocates
called “Hear our Voices”.

At this conference, people with an intellectual disability
come together
to talk about and share ideas and
experiences about intellectual disability.

The last “Hear our voices” conference took place from 5 to 7 December 2017.

In 2019, Hear our voices will take place from 18-20 September in Graz, Austria.
