Two guest speakers will share their experiences and insights on the theme and this will be followed by breakout discussion sessions.

A summary of the discussions will be used to inform NDA’s work and the development of a new UNCRPD Implementation Strategy during 2023 by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
