The International Disability Alliance (IDA) together with the BOND Disability and Development Group (DDG), International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC), Disability Rights Fund (DRF), UK DPOs and other partners, is organising a Civil Society Forum (referred to as the Forum) on 23 July, one day prior to the Global Disability Summit, at Queen Elizabeth Park in London.
The purpose of the Forum is to leverage the opportunity to amplify the perspectives and participation of persons with disabilities, through their individual participation and that of representative organisations (DPOs). It is also to to highlight current issues relevant to the global disability movement and realisation of the CRPD, that will not specifically be addressed at the Summit.
There is the opportunity for Civil Society to inform the discussions at the Forum and capture what civil society sees as most important to inform the outcomes of the overall Summit. Those interested can click here to do so through an online consultation.
