Conference of State Parties 2020 - our virtual side event EASY READ - click here for easy read information. We co-hosted this event with Inclusion International. Presentations were made about the work we are jointly doing to develop international guidelines for inclusive participation in a project called Listen Include Respect. Speakers included self-advocates working together with us on the project and representatives from UNICEF and the United Nations. We provided a platform to share the challenges faced by people with intellectual disabilities to be included in the work of organisations, to introduce the work to develop the guidelines Listen, Include, Respect and to share the first findings from the global consultation that was held in order to develop the guidelines. DESCRIPTION What is COSP? Each year States Parties meet in a Conference of States Parties (COSP) in order to consider any matters regarding the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The Council for Intellectual Disability and the International Disability Alliance have produced an Easy Read guide to COSP which you can read here: EASY READ COSP Learn more about the Listen Include Respect project INCLUSIVE PARTICIPATION Booking for this event has now closed.
