The EEG is a group of people
who wants to close all institutions.
They want people to be able to live
in the community.
“EEG” is short for “European Expert Group”.
Inclusion Europe is part of this group.
On Thursday 16 January 2020,
the EEG group is organising a conference
at the European Commission.
The conference is titled “Towards inclusion”.
It will happen in the Charlemagne building
from 8 am until 4:30 pm.
The conference will have 3 parts:
- the 1st part looks at what the European Union has done so far
to support deinstitutionalisation
- the 2nd part looks at what is currently being done
- the 3rd part is about the things that still should be done
so people can move from institutions
to the community.
Only people who have been invited can attend the conference,
but you can also watch it live on the internet.
