International Day of Persons with Disabilities, 3 December 2012

From UN Enable:


Are you preparing for 3 December 2012? The theme of this year's commemoration is: "Removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all". Barriers can take a variety of forms, including those relating to the physical environment or to information and communications technology (ICT), or those resulting from legislation or policy, or from societal attitudes or discrimination.

 Based on this theme, sub-themes can be selected to help remove barriers in areas such as education, employment, transportation, travel and tourism or sports. 

Choose your own sub-theme, so as to address a specific issue of exclusion and accessibility in your community and let us know about it.
