May 5, 2024, the European Independent Living Day 2024

The European Independent Living Day, celebrated annually on May 5th, champions the right to independent living for disabled individuals.

Initiated by the ENIL Board in 2014, it serves as a platform to raise awareness, advocate for rights, and stand in solidarity with those facing barriers. Events range from press conferences to online campaigns, with each year focusing on a different theme such as accessibility or segregation. ENIL encourages members to organize related events and share their experiences, photos, and messages on social media. This collective effort amplifies the voices of disabled people and promotes inclusive action across Europe.
