Inclusion International General Assembly & World Down Syndrome Congress
14-18 November 2020
We are delighted to announce Inclusion International’s General Assembly will be held on 18 November 2020, in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. In Inclusion International’s 60th year, we are thrilled to be bringing our membership together in MENA.
Inclusion International’s members last came together in Birmingham in 2018 where we set our priorities for the coming years. As part of our General Assembly programme we are planning to hold both a Self-Advocacy Summit and a Family Summit (14 November 2020) where we will explore strategies to advance our Calls to Action and to make inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities all over the world a reality.
This year for the first time we are organizing our General Assembly to coincide with the World Down Syndrome Congress in Dubai, UAE from 15 – 17 November 2020. This is an opportunity to bring together the membership of both networks to advance our common agendas. We would like to encourage Inclusion International members to submit abstracts to present at the Congress. The deadline for submission is 15 March 2020.
Inclusion International members will be able to register for the General Assembly, the Family Summit and the Self-Advocacy Summit through Inclusion International. We are also in the process of agreeing for our members to pre-register for the World Down Syndrome Congress through Inclusion International. Registration rates and transportation from hotel to the Congress venue are currently being discussed.
We’ll be in touch soon with more information about the General Assembly, the Summits and WDSC, the fees and how you can register for all these events.
