3 projects to celebrate the 21st of March 2021


Focus on the sponsorship project from Members of the European Parliament:
an invitation to meet persons with Down’s Syndrome


The World Down Syndrome Day will take place in three weeks: Sunday 21st March 2021. To celebrate
this emblematic date for persons with Down’s syndrome,
EUfortrisomy21 proposes three projects:

  • 1 project to reflect : an online-conference will be organized within the days leading to the
    21st on March;
  •  1 festive project to celebrate together (it will be communicated by the middle of March)
  • 1 unprecedented project to challenge politic leaders and to make them act.

This third project is adressed to european politic leaders, in particular Members of the European
Parliament (MEPs)
: EUfortrisomy21 ask them to meet one person with Down’s Syndrome (or
his/her parent) from their country, and to celebrate together World Down Syndrome Day
.


A group of committed MEPs have already shown their interest for this initiative and their intention
to raise awareness among their colleagues in the European Parliament: Ms. Estrella Durá (S&D), Ms.
Katrin Langensiepen (Greens), Ms. Radka Maxova (Renew), Mr. François-Xavier Bellamy (EPP), Mr.
Patrick Jaki (ECR).
