Hosted by the European Commission, in partnership with the European Disability Forum, this annual event is an opportunity for the EU to mainstream disability issues and to raise awareness of the challenges faced by persons with disabilities in their everyday lives.

Politicians, high-level experts and disability advocates will attend the conference to discuss the challenges, solutions and projects for improving policies related to persons with disabilities.

The 2020 conference will include discussions on the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on persons with disabilities. It will also be an opportunity to put forward the final results of the evaluation of the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 and to have a last round of reflections for the forthcoming Strategy on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030.
