What is your community doing for IDPwD2015?

International Day of Persons with Disabilities (#idpwd) is coming up on the 3rd of December. 

Currently, there are approximately 1 billion persons living with disabilities in the world, or 15 per cent of the global population. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities prepares the way to change perceptions of persons living with disabilities and promote their abilities to contribute as full and equal participants in the societies in which they live.

The  UN Enable "Images of Ability" Photo Exhibition will work to help change misperceptions and to counter stigma and stereotyping about persons with disabilities. The  United Nations Enable Film Festival (UNEFF) includes short disabilty-related films to help raise awareness of disability issues.

Check out the great films that have been made… Maybe you might like to enter your short film or photograph next year?

Or perhaps you are already planning to organise an event on the 3rd of December this year 
to bring people together and raise awareness in your community? 

Let's all get involved in celebrating #idpwd 2015!
