2nd EDF ENGO Meeting

Logo of European Disability Forum

On 20th June, Mr Mark Wheatley and Mr Alexandre Bloxs, respectively EUD Executive Director and EUD Policy Manager, attended the European Disability Forum (EDF) European Non-Governmental Organisation (ENGO) meeting.

The ENGO meeting is an initiative launched by EDF and gather its members to discuss relevant disability policy and legislative developments and update all relevant stakeholders on the work of each of EDF’s members. The membership of the ENGO platform is constituted of the 23 European NGO members of EDF.

The Platform has proven to be an excellent initiative to disseminate the newly released EUD policy recommendations, respectively on the European Disability Card and the Highest Attainable Standard of Health for Deaf People. EUD also seized the momentum of this event to highlight the barriers faced by deaf communities to full participation in all areas of EU society due to the lack of recognition of the EU national sign languages as EU official languages.

All the publications from 2022 - 2026 are co-funded by and produced under the European Commission’s Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) Programme.

Views and opinions expressed are however those of the author(s) only and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union or the European Commission’s CERV Programme. Neither the European Union nor the granting authority can be held responsible for them.
