6th IASSIDD EUROPE CONGRESS – Value Diversity (hybrid congress)
The COVID-19 pandemic is a disruptive force, a crisis that at the same time accelerates and reveals the effects of exclusionary societal structures. There is value to humankind in embracing what has been undervalued in the past: to value diversity means to move forward on the path towards social inclusion for people with disabilities and towards equality for all. This matter needs to be seriously considered through scientific study and information sharing, through debate on how social structures exclude people with intellectual and developmental disabilities from participating in society.
This congress brings the two key elements of face-to-face and virtual events together.
