GAATO invite you to learn more about the launch on August 19th.
GAATO already invited you to an exclusive preview event on Tuesday 15 June 2021 to showcase an exciting new campaign that will launch this August and be a game-changer for persons with disabilities around the globe.
Aligned with the UN 2030 Agenda, WeThe15 is a decade-long campaign that brings together 20 influential and impactful international organisations to work towards a common goal: to use sport, business and the entertainment industry to transform the lives of the world’s one billion persons with disabilities.
The main campaign will launch worldwide on 19 August, days before the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Ahead of this launch, on 15 June, at the UN Conference of State Parties on the Convention of Rights of Persons with Disabilities, committee members told you more about the campaign, what is aims to achieve over the next 10 years, which organisations are involved and how you can be part of it. For more information as it is released please check the #WeThe15 website.
Hosted by the International Paralympic Committee and International Disability Alliance, the speakers on 15 June were:
· Moderator: Vladimir Cuk, Executive Director, International Disability Alliance
· Andrew Parsons, President, International Paralympic Committee
· Caroline Casey, Founder of The Valuable 500
· Eddie Ndopu, SDG Advocate and global humanitarian
