Strengthening Our Movement: A Focus on European Perspectives
Inclusion International with Inclusion Europe engaged our European network in a discussion about strengthening and revitalizing our global movement. In response to demands from members in Europe for enhanced collaboration and coordination between European and global efforts we will move toward one membership in one movement. As a part of one movement members will have access to and support from global and regional networks and expertise in policy and practice that is relevant and useful for their work at a national level. A more coordinated approach will enable Inclusion International and Inclusion Europe to better meet the needs of our members and ensure that we are: relevant to families; effectively advancing self-advocacy; and effective in influencing European and global policy agendas.
