Dreamy summer holiday

According the art.4 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, States Parties undertake to ensure and promote the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all persons with disabilities without discrimination of any kind on the basis of disability. To this end, States Parties  take into account the protection and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities in all policies and programmes.

People with disabilities have to enjoy the same rights like  all other citizens. Everybody has the rights to happiness and realisation of his dreams. These photos show people with mental and phisycal disabilities during their summer holiday by the sea. Something that is rarely seen on our beaches.

Reflection questions:

1/ Which national legislation refers to the rights of people with disabilities?

2/  What are the main obstacles to integration of people with disabilities in the society?
