Europe in Action conference in June 2022: End segregation!

Europe in Action conference 2022: End segregation!

Europe in Action conference takes place from 7 to 9 September 2022.

  • It will be a mixed event of direct face-to-face conversations, and online presentations.
  • The face-to-face parts of the conference take place in Brussels, Belgium.

(The conference was originally schedule for early June; It is being postponed because of the Russian war on Ukraine, so that we can prepare the conference properly)

The conference is about how to end segregation.

  • What kind of support is needed for people with intellectual disabilities, and especially those with complex support needs, to live include in the community.
  • How to properly and quickly replace segregated residential “care institutions” with good support in the community.
  • What we learned from deinstitutionalisation in Europe, and how to put it in practice everywhere.

The topic of the conference contributes to this year’s End segregation campaign, and to our new strategy.

  • There will be discussion papers on the topic for members of Inclusion Europe and others to talk about.
  • There will be presentations of various practices and examples of how deinstitutionalisation has been done, and how proper support services are provided.
  • If you have a topic you would like to share during the conference kindly write to us.


Our work brings the voice of people with intellectual disabilities and their families where decisions about their future are made.

This has always been incredibly important. It is even more so with the Covid pandemic drastic impact on their rights and lives.

Being visible and vocal on issues directly affecting millions of people requires your support.
