The report from the conference celebrating the Day of Persons with Disabilities on 7-8 December 2015 – “Growing together in a barrier-free Europe” has just been released. It gives an account of the successful and well attended event that took place at the Charlemagne Building in Brussels. The achievements of young disabled people from across Europe were recognised and celebrated. Personal stories were told, bad practices – highlighted and good examples – introduced. The floor was given to young disabled people who spoke about their own life situations and suggested solutions. This was in line with the idea of ‘full inclusion’ – nobody is a better expert on your life than YOU!
