EU Disability Card – from proposal to reality


‘From Proposal to reality’ – On-line event by the European Disability Forum (EFD)

9 November 2023 | 14:00 – 15:30

The European Commission proposed a law for a new European Disability Card and a European Parking Card. The Disability Card would provide mutual recognition of disability for EU citizens during short stays in other EU countries.

This proposal follows years of pilot projects and demands – and it’s not a reality yet.

The European Commission made a first proposal, but the European Parliament and the Council of EU (that represents EU countries) need to set their positions and negotiate for the final text. This is the moment to put a spotlight in our demands and for organisations and individuals to share what they want the Card to be.

This event will be an opportunity for you to learn:

  • The journey until the Card becomes a reality
  • Key players
  • The demands from the disability movement
  • How the Card might look like
  • What will it cover
  • Experiences from the use of the Cards made during the pilot projects

Join us to understand what the Card will be and what you can do to support a strong European Disability Card.

This event will provide International sign interpretation and real-time captioning in English.
