„Moving borders“

15 – 18 June 2022 in Zurich

Congress

Seven congresses were held between 1998 and 2018.

Sometimes almost 700 people attended.

The congresses took place in different countries.

In Europe.

These congresses were designed for people in need of support.

A congress in Zurich is planned for 2022.

For people in need of support.

For people without need of support.

For professionals. For relatives. For all.

The congress lasts four days.

500 people are taking part. From all over Europe.

The aim is: meeting, exchange, education and development.

One goal is also: all participants are committed.

For an inclusive society. In other words:

For a world in which all people have their place.

People with and without a need for support.

„The congress is important for me.

I can show something to others.

Namely: People with a need for support can do a lot.

Much more than is always thought. » (Member of the organisation group)

People in need of support can often give a lot.

More than society gives them credit for.

It is important to know this.

For all congress participants.

You can carry this message to the world.
