International Day of Persons with Disabilities
On the 3rd December, UN Enable is marking the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The theme for the day is Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities. UN Enable is encouraging governments, UN agencies, civil society organisations, academic institutions and companies in the private sector to arrange events.
The day is also aiming to create awareness around themes such as inclusive and accessible cities, invisible disabilities, and improving disability data and statistics. These are all important issues that should be raised within government and the private sector, and UN Enable is doing valuable and important work for people with disabilities.
