The next ESCIF Congress will take place between the 6th and the 8th of May 2020 in Switzerland, in Nottwil. The topic of the Congress will be about the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
The CRPD is the basic document to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the same rights and opportunities as everybody else.
During the Congress participants will learn about the CRPD and how organisations, such as ESCIF and its member organisations, can participate in governmental processes related to the CRPD. Furthermore, practical examples of the impact of the CRPD from rehabilitation and public transport will be presented. The congress is open to anyone who has an interest in spinal cord injury and disability rights - be it a personal or professional one. The fifteenth ESCIF Congress is organised by the Swiss Paraplegic Association and supported by the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation.
The venue of the Congress is the following:
