On June 1-2, 2019, the European Disability Forum’s (EDF) Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Brussels gathered representatives from the disability movement from all over Europe together with representatives of European institutions.
The AGA hosted an active debate on the implementation of the rights of persons with disabilities in Europe and its member states. EDF and its members also adopted a resolution calling for the establishment of a Directorate for the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in the EU, and a resolution calling on the EU to ratify the Marrakesh treaty immediately.
The HiReach representatives, Délphine Grandsart (EPF) and Jos Sales (IRU), presented the work being done in the project. HiReach material was available in the poster booth and raised interest among the Forum’s participants.
