International Day of People with Disabilities

International Day of People with Disabilities 2021

What is International Day of People with Disabilities?

International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPD) – 3 December – is a United Nations (UN) sanctioned day celebrated annually. This important day aims to raise awareness and promote action around the rights of people with disabilities and their full inclusion in society. CBM Australia encourages people to share the message of inclusion and diversity on IDPD so that collectively, we can truly build a world where all people are included and valued as equal members of society.

This year we’re focussing on building back a #BetterWorldForAll

COVID-19 has had a catastrophic impact on the lives of people with disabilities.

On IDPD 2021 – as the world races to vaccinate, recover, and build back better – let’s ensure the world we build is a #BetterWorldForAll.

People with disabilities are still overwhelmingly overlooked in crises and continue to face greater hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have an opportunity to address these injustices and recover in a way that emphasises inclusive public health, safety and justice.

Together let’s raise our collective voice and demand we build back a #BetterWorldForAll where people with disabilities are part of the conversation and fully participate.

It makes our world a better place.
