On 08.06.2016, EUD took part in a very interesting meeting with the European Commission on the development of a European pillar of social rights and on inclusive growth. During this meeting, EUD shared its concerns in the area of employment and freedom of movement in the EU for deaf persons, for example the fact that sign language interpretation is not uniformly available across EU countries. In March this year, the annual convention on Inclusive Growth had taken place. During this meeting, participants reviewed the conference and discussed its outcome to further progress on this issue.
