International Day of Disabilities

Today on 3 December is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

EUD is cooperating with the European Parliament and their Personnel Office and Equality and Diversity Unit and we have a stall here today.

With the stall we raise awareness to persons with disability, how to communicate with deaf persons.

Many people have been here, Members of the European Parliament and their assistants asking questions and mingling.

There was also a quiz organised which had over 250 participants, some questions on how to communicate with deaf persons for example. 44 people had all the answers correct and out of that pool three people were selected and received a prize from the Vice President of the European Parliament.

This has been a good day for networking and to show our cooperation with the European Parliament.
