ecosoc brochure 300x3008 May 2017 // May is the last month to apply for the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) consultative status to be considered by the 2018 NGO Committee. The call for applications will close after 1 June 2017.

ECOSOC consultative status not only provides NGOs with access to ECOSOC, but also to its many subsidiary bodies, to the various human rights mechanisms of the UN, as well as special events organized by the President of the General Assembly.

accessible banking5 May 2017 // The European Parliament's Internal Market Committee (IMCO Committee) adopted a very disappointing report on the European Accessibility Act in its vote on the 25th April. The IMCO Committee has favoured business demands over the rights of individual people, consumers, including persons with disabilities. This contradicts all previous statements by the European Parliament on the Accessibility Act and in particular the European Parliament's resolution of 7 July 2016 on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).

That is what we are raising awareness on today: independent living for people with disabilities such as Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.
