16th July 2015: Raising Awareness & Combating Prejudice and Discrimination directed at people with learning disabilities around the globe
This event presented findings from a review into attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities around the globe, and efforts to improve them in line with Article 8 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Person with Disabilities.
This project was conducted in partnership with Leonard Cheshire Disability, Inclusion International, and distributed globally with support from IASSID (International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disabilities) and Special Olympics.
Positive efforts to raise awareness and foster acceptance and equality from the UK and from around the world were presented, as were talks by self-advocates and Disability Organisations on their work aimed at raising awareness and challenging stigma.
All talks at this event were filmed and can be viewed below in the order of the programme.
