We have received the following email:
Dear friends of Inclusion Europe,
In this e-include special edition I would like to invite you to this year’s Europe in Action conference “Love, life and friendship”.
Where and when?
The conference will be jointly organised with Inclusion Czech Republic and will take place in Prague from 1 to 3 June 2017 (with associated meetings starting on 31 May).
How can I register?
Why this topic?
We chose this topic because finding friends and partners is important for everyone’s wellbeing. However, people with an intellectual disability often face difficulties when establishing such relationships. Their families, on the other hand, might have hopes but also fears when it comes to this issue.
What will happen at the conference?
At this conference, we will listen to people with first-hand experience on the topic: people with intellectual disabilities themselves and their parents. The event will be a space for discussion, for exchanging opinions and sharing experiences of how to overcome certain barriers and worries. We hope that through the diversity of speakers, the conference will be a good opportunity for opening up new perspectives, raising awareness of the importance of these themes, and for potential cooperation.
Where can I find more information?
Please do not hesitate to visit the conference website for information about accommodation options, the beautiful city of Prague and the (constantly updated) list of speakers. On the website you can also find video invitations by our President Maureen Piggot and our Vice-president and EPSA chair, Senada Halilčević.
So, what are you waiting for? Register now and I am looking forward to seeing you in Prague!
