Event description

Description

Come and be part of the global network for Inclusion!

Join us for Inclusion International’s 17th World Congress, Learn, Inspire, Lead, in Birmingham, UK, 30 May – 1 June 2018. The World Congress is organised by Inclusion International and Inclusion Europe, and is proudly sponsored by Mencap.

The World Congress will bring together our global network of people with intellectual disabilities and families who work to promote inclusion. Together we will learn, inspire, and lead the way in making inclusion a reality for people with intellectual disabilities and their families around the world.

Programme

Our programme is taking shape and we are excited that Learn, Inspire, Lead will profile promising practices and examples in inclusion. Sessions will provide participants with opportunities to:

  • Learn and share experiences from around the world about priority issues for people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
  • Inspire and be inspired by sharing success stories, new ideas and new ways of working for inclusive policy, programs, and practices.
  • Lead the way as a global movement in promoting inclusive communities for all.

Learn, Inspire, Lead will have a fun social programme and provide valuable opportunities for networking and connecting with self-advocates and families from around the world. Most of all, it will be a chance to connect with old friends and make new ones.

We are honoured that our World Congress will also host Europe in Action to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Inclusion Europe. Additionally, we will be hosting our General Assembly on 2 June, 2018; the Inclusion Europe General Assembly (31 May); and, the European Platform of Self-Advocates General meeting (30 May).

A full programme will be announced nearer the event, including speakers and workshops – stay tuned!
