We support the congress „Moving borders“
|Marianne Streiff-Feller, Member of the National Council and President INSOS |
„Inclusion means moving, shifting, overcoming borders. The congress would like to make a contribution to this“.
|Nik Hartmann, Moderator |
„Persons with disabilities have much more to give than is socially recognised and conceded to them. I am sure that this message will be carried beyond the boundaries of the Congress“.

„A European congress that moves and overcomes borders and promotes inclusion comes at just the right time – now that borders between countries and social groups are once again coming more to the fore“.
|Franz Hohler, Writer|
„To see that as a person with a disability you are not alone and are not left alone by society, to be able to exchange with others, to work out answers to questions, to become a common voice, a voice that is heard – that is what I hope for from this congress“.
|Corinne Mauch, Mayor of Zurich |
„Persons with disabilities are particularly sensitive to borders. These boundaries often arise through society and the environment. Limiting means restricting. Crossing borders, on the other hand, means experiencing something new, enriching oneself, growing beyond oneself. This experience should be equally open to all people. The Inclusive Congress makes exactly this possible. I am delighted that the 2022 Congress will be held in Zurich under the motto ‚Moving Borders‘.
|Martin Ott, Head of Agricultural School, President FIBL, former Cantonal Council|
„As far as I know, there has never been an inclusive educational offer of this magnitude in Switzerland before. I consider this a real opportunity to move boundaries between people“.
