Online event: Web Accessibility Directive Deadline - Are we accessible yet?


image of opening laptop23 September 2020. Online. The European Disability Forum invites you to an online discussion on the Web Accessibility Directive, co-organised with Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology of the European Commission.

The Web Accessibility Directive, adopted in 2016, sets 23 September 2020 as the date by which all public sector websites across the EU will have to be accessible for persons with disabilities. So, the online event will mark this important milestone for digital accessibility and participation in the EU.

Key stakeholders will highlight achievements and remaining challenges in terms of practical implementation of web accessibility from different perspectives, including policy makers, Member States, activists, users, academia and accessibility professionals.

Date: Wednesday, September 23, 2020 - 15:00 hrs. CEST (Brussels / Belgium time)
Duration: 2 Hours
Location: Online
