List of activities on 3rd December 2019

The International Day of Disabled People is set by the United Nations to celebrate disabled people’s success in challenging disabling barriers and empower disabled people worldwide to fight for equal rights (UN 2018). On 3rd December – every year since 1992 – disabled people and disability organisations gather together to support disabled people’s rights.  

This year’s theme focuses on empowering disabled people for an inclusive, equitable and sustainable development as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
