Do you want to join us in Brussels?

EU for Trisomy 21 invites our Partner Organisations and all of those who want to become our Partners to participate in our #GreatInitiatives in Europe Conference in Brussels, Belgium, May 9&10 2022.

Through the success of our #GreatInitiatives Campaign for World Down Syndrome Day 2022, we decided to hold an In-Person event in Brussels at the European Parliament for our EU for Trisomy 21 Network. During this event we will feature the Winner of our Campaign as well as many other initiatives and organisations who are working hard to improve the lives of people with Trisomy 21 every day. This event will take place inside the European Parliament and will feature Best Practice Presentations, Workshops and and a chance for our partners to have meetings with Members of the European Parliament from their country. Check out our detailed program below.
