Report: European Independent Living Day – May 5th 2019

The 6th European Independent Living Day was celebrated in Europe (and beyond), and was a very successful one! Although this year 5th May was on Sunday (a non working day), disabled people and their allies celebrated it in more than 25 countries, showing that the Independent Living movement is strong and active!

As always, the goal of raising awareness on Independent Living was achieved in various and often creative ways. Many events were covered by local media, and most of them via social media (some of the activities were held exclusively on the online world), spreading the Independent Living idea to as many people and channels as possible.

ENIL tried to collect data from all the activities and events that took place, and below we share them with you. If you are aware of activities missing, please let our Development Officer, Kamil Goungor, know (at and he will make sure that the report will be updated.
