International Day of People with Disability

The theme for 2016 is: Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want.

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day that takes place on 3 December. 

The annual theme provides a frame for considering how people with disability are excluded from society by promoting the removal of all types of barriers;including those relating to the physical environment, information and communications technology (ICT), or attitudinal barriers. This has been occurring since 1992 when the General Assembly proclaimed 3 December as the International Day of Disabled Persons.

Today, countries all around the world celebrate the day.

In Australia, we take our theme from the UN theme, which for 2016 is 'Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want'.
