SUDI 2019 – Sustainability and Disability Conference

Buenos Aires at Night with SUDI logo

The 2019 SUDI Conference will bring together policy-makers, academics, practitioners, business representatives, and NGOs/DPOs, to discuss and elaborate on proposals to more effectively channel policies and strategies to address the employment and quality of life needs of people with disabilities, November 25-26, 2019, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Currently more than one billion people (15% of the global population) live with some form of disability. Aging, chronic health issues, and mental health disorders are major factors contributing to disability around the globe. These individuals are disproportionately disadvantaged globally in economic and employment opportunities. Thus, it is critical to address these far-reaching global disability issues proactively.

The conference is framed along the four main dimensions permeating the discussion of disability issues, such as equality, respect, fairness, and inclusion.

Lifting people with disabilities out of poverty and into economic self-sufficiency is a key pillar of an inclusive, equitable and sustainable global social and business environment. As stated by Professor Stephen W.Hawking, “Disability need not to be an obstacle to success.”
