Accessibility is a human right. It is equal access for persons with disabilities, and a precondition to enjoy independent living and full participation in society. However, it is not easy to include accessibility into legislation, particularly when this relates to the ever-evolving information and communication technologies. This is why the European Accessibility Act (EAA) is an opportunity which cannot be missed.
Join us on the Global Awareness Accessibility Day (GAAD) to discuss, together with representatives from the European Commission and the European Parliament, Member States, standardization bodies, Facebook and the European Disability Forum, the challenges and opportunities of this landmark legislation, with a particular focus on the impact for the digital world.
