The European Disability Card is a small document,
like an ID (identity card).
The card says that the person has a disability.
The Disability Card makes it easier for people
to travel across the EU and use
services for people with disabilities.
The European Commission wants the
card to be used in all EU countries.
The Disability Platform is organised
by the European Commission.
The Platform is a new place for countries in the EU,
disability organisations, and the European Commission
to work together.
A campaign will promote the
EU Disability Rights strategy in 2022.
The campaign will show how the EU
helps people with disabilities to
have the same opportunities as everyone else.
