European Day of People with Disabilities Conference
1-2 December 2008, Brussels. To mark the European Day of People with Disabilities, the European Commission organises a policy conference in the first week of December each year, in close cooperation with the European Disability Forum (EDF).
The theme of the Conference will be "Acting Locally for a Society for All". The Conference will focus on how EU action/legislation reaches the local level and will provide examples of disability mainstreaming, including developments in accessible tourism.
