The focus of the conference will be on children and young people with disability. There will be presentations and discussions on the current situation of children with disabilities in Europe, on their access to education and how the EU contributes to the equal participation of children and young people with disabilities in society.

On 8 December, at a ceremony during the conference, the Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Marianne Thyssen, will announce the winners of the 2016 Access City Award, the European wide award that rewards cities for their efforts in making them accessible to all.

Registration for the conference can be made only upon invitation, but it will be webstreamed on both event days.
