International Day of People with a Disability
On 3 December every year, International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is celebrated worldwide recognising the achievements and contributions of people with disability, who live work and play in our community. This year’s theme is “ Achieving 17 Goals for the future we want ”, which draws attention to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and how these goals can create a more inclusive and equitable world for people with disability.
IDPwD brings together people with disability and the general community and aims to:
- showcase the skills, abilities, contributions and achievements of people with disability
- promote a positive image of people with disability
- involve people with disability & the broader community in activities to celebrate and raise awareness of IDPwD.
