FIRST MEEING OF THE GROUP FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY
L’Acord Ciutadà per una Barcelona Inclusiva (The citizen agreement for an Inclusive Barcelona) is a space of participation, public and private collaboration, and continuous action between organisations of the city that work in order to build a more inclusive Barcelona and a better quality of life of every citizen. Currently, more than 600 entities take part in this agreement, among them, universities, trade unions, companies and patronages.
The aim of this Citizen Agreement is to increase the human capital of the city, in other words, the capacity of organisation and joint action. In order to achieve this, the agreement promotes the cooperation among entities, creating networks of action that allow the advance in the construction of a common welfare: the social inclusion.
Next 22nd of February, the first meeting of the group Functional Diversity of the Citizen Agreement for an Inclusive Barcelona will be held. som – fundació is part of this group which will deal about matters related with the following aspects:
- Support and promotion of independent life of the persons with disabilities and functional diversity.
- Awareness of the population, promotion and defence of the rights of the persons with disabilities and functional diversity.
- Attention and support to the families of the persons with disabilities and functional diversity.
