Can you believe it? The Conference is less than a month away! In under 3 weeks, we’ll be welcoming over 600 participants from all around the world to the United Nations in Vienna. There’s so much to look forward to, not only for those who are attending, but for everyone else tuning in to our live stream. So what can we tell you?
Well, we are still making final arrangements, but we are excited to a host of new sessions, exhibits, speakers and features, most notably:
- Easy-language additions – For the first time, we will have an easy-language summary of the report! We will also be trialling easy-language features in a number of sessions, including easy-language translation summaries and round-ups of discussions.
- Screening of specially-selected short films – Our good friends at ReelAbilities Film Festival have helped source short films to be screened on the mornings of days one and two of the conference. They will also be joining us in the final session to share their expertise in discussing good practice in films and other media.
- A creative performance by self-advocates – Lumos Foundation will be presenting a creative performance in the main room, led by self-advocates from Moldova.
- An interactive accessible voting experience – Long-time friends and Zero Project Conference contributors Access Israel will be putting together a voting experience where attendees can try out some voting solutions currently on offer.
And there is still so much more we’re putting the final touches on that we’re desperate to share with you!
We look forward to so many of you joining us and we hope you enjoy this year’s event!
