11 Months to ENIL Freedom Drive 2017

11 Months to ENIL Freedom Drive 2017

The ENIL Freedom Drive 2017 will be dedicated to Martin Naughton who was the main person behind the event. ENIL feels the great loss of Martin and wants to remember Martin by dedicating the 2017 Freedom Drive to him.

Martin always spoke on the added value of what ENIL does and with the theme “Investment in the future! A voice for All! Children voices are to be heard!”  indeed there is an added value. We want to guarantee that through our growing Youth Network and the start of A Children for Independent Living Network – the Independent Living Movement will continue developing in Europe and globally.

Save the dates in your calendars: 24th – 28th September 2017.

The place will be Brussels with exact locations still to be confirmed.

As usual, hotels in Brussels are going to be expensive, so we recommend early as early as possible hotel booking.
