Representation for People with Down Syndrome in the European Union.

Raise up your voice in favor of Trisomy 21 in the European Union. Join our campaign to make Europe a great place for people with intellectual disabilities.

We believe the EU is failing people with Trisomy 21 by not taking their special needs into account when it comes to Visibility, Health, Autonomy, and Non-Discrimination. We need more people who have first hand experience with the concerns and needs of people with Down Syndrome to be personally involved in creating these policies. We want more representation! #WeWantMore

What is the Conference for the Future of Europe?

__01

The EU has asked its citizens to help them by telling them what they would wish to be future policies for the European Union. 

__02

Until March 2022 all EU citizens can propose new issues and interact with each other on the platform “Conference for the Future of Europe”.

__03

You can join them too, by signing up on the website. It’s simple, you can even use your google account.

Why should we get involved in the COFEU?

__04

In the EU there is not enough representation for people with intellectual disabilities.

__05

For example there were no people with intellectual disabilities involved in writing the EU’s new “Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030”. They are hardly mentioned in the strategy at all.

__06

Having no representation has had a terrible effect on people with intellectual and neurological disabilities, especially for the Down Syndrome community.

__07

We need more people who know about the concerns and needs of these communities through personal experience to help the EU write these policies. We want more representation! 

__08

 That is why we created the campaign #WeWantMore.

__09

We, EU for Trisomy 21, have started a debate about the issue of representation. Join the debate here and let the EU Decision Makers know why it is so important to have true representation. 

__10

True European democracy only works if it really represents all of its citizens.
