Online discussion on the Web Accessibility Directive
September 23 @ 15 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min
The European Disability Forum holds an online discussion on the Web Accessibility Directive, co-organised with Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology of the European Commission.
The Web Accessibility Directive, adopted in 2016, sets 23 September 2020 as the date by which all public sector websites across the EU will have to be accessible for persons with disabilities.
Thus, the online event will mark this important milestone for digital accessibility and participation in the EU. Key stakeholders will highlight achievements and remaining challenges in terms of practical implementation of web accessibility from different perspectives, including policy makers, Member States, activists, users, academia and accessibility professionals.
The programme will become available on this page soon.
The online event will be public, free-of-charge, and recorded. International sign interpretation and live captioning will be provided.
