The United Nations
in the general principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) calls for:
“full and effective participation and inclusion in society”
So what can you do?
Think about what inclusion means
Think about your daily life; when you take part in activities like school, work, recreation or public life, alongside other people.
Are you included? Do you have the same opportunities as others? Or do you face barriers? Do you participate in inclusive activities? Or are they segregated?
Try to say “Inclusion means…”
What is an an inclusive activity or an inclusive system? Do you take part in one? Or would you like to? How would you describe such an activity or system?
