Together towards a disability-inclusive future: From the SDG Summit to beyond 2030

Organizers: Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar to the UN, Permanent Mission of Guatemala to the UN, Permanent Mission of Mexico to the UN, UNICEF, UNPRPD, Stakeholder Group of Persons with Disabilities, International Disability Alliance, International Disability and Development Consortium, Women’s Major Group and Major Group on Children and Youth.

Ahead of the SDG Summit, this side-event aims to raise the urgency to ensure that we do not once again miss the chance to meaningfully include persons with disabilities, including from the lens of multiple intersecting forms of discrimination. It will also highlight the critical need to ensure that persons with disabilities and their representative organizations (OPDs) participate meaningfully in all events and mechanisms as we approach 2030 and plan for beyond, including at the SDGs Summit itself.

Speakers will include Abia Akram and Elizabeth Lockwood.

International Sign and CART will be provided. More information about the event here: https://lnkd.in/eZw8zJ5n
