Register for the I Conference on Disability and Social Inclusion in the Mediterranean

The situation of persons with disabilities in the Euro-Mediterranean region is far from being fully satisfactory. Many countries have improved their legislative environments, with advances affecting positively this social group throughout the last years. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go.

This year, the Union for the Mediterranean, in collaboration with ONCE Social Group, organizes a conference on Disability and Social Inclusion in the Mediterranean in order to analyze three key issues in the post-COVID era that are: the challenges and limitations that persons of disabilities face in order to access human rights and employment, the importance of a gender perspective in future agendas and recovery programmes and the role of accessible tourism in the inclusion of persons with disabilities in this sector as a solution for the crisis recovery in the region. 

The conference will take place at the UfM premises, Palacio Real de Pedralbes-Barcelona. The event will also be streamed live. 

Why join?

  • Follow interactive seminars, dialogues, and roundtables with high-level international experts, and heads of national and regional disability policies, regional umbrella disability organisations.   
  • Learn about how to place the needs of persons with disabilities in governments and IGOs´ agendas and recovery processes.
  • Take part in the practical workshops and join a network of civil society actors and institutional participants.
