Deadline: Sunday 8 July 2018

EUROPE: The International Disability Alliance (IDA) together with the BOND Disability and Development Group (DDG), International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC), Disability Rights Fund (DRF), UK DPOs and other partners, is organizing a Civil Society Forum (referred to as the Forum) on 23 July, one day priorto the Global Disability Summit, at Queen Elizabeth Park in London.

The purpose of the Forum is to leverage the opportunity to amplify the perspectives and participation of persons with disabilities, through their individual participation and that of representative organizations (DPOs). It is also to highlight current issues relevant to the global disability movement and realization of the CRPD, that will not specifically be addressed at the Summit.

The partners are conducting an Online Global Consultation with Civil Society to inform the discussions at the Forum and capture what civil society sees as most important to inform the outcomes of the overall Summit. Responses to this survey will also feed into the Statement IDA will share on behalf of Civil Society during the Opening of the Global Disability Summit day on 24 July.

The online consultation survey can be completed by individuals who are associated with a civil society organization.
