ENIL is organising a weeklong study session at the Council of Europe Youth Centre, with the purpose of encouraging and supporting young disabled people in advocating for human rights in their countries and at European level. Participants will have an opportunity to gain a better understanding of disability issues and acquire skills to promote the views of other young disabled people from their country. The session will be delivered by a group of young disabled people from the UK, Iceland and Bulgaria with experience in working with young people in their countries and internationally.
ENIL hopes to encourage future young leaders of the Independent Living movement and will continue to provide support through an established ENIL Youth Network.
The study session will take place between the 21st October and 28th October 2012 in Strasbourg, France. Deadline for applications is 10 June 2012.
