Welcome Addresses

2 | 15 th World Congress of Inclusion International

Welcome by Self-Advocates of the Inclusion Movement

Dear Friends,

In 2010, the World Congress of Inclusion International will take place. The congress

is being organised by the German association Lebenshilfe and by Inclusion Europe

aisbl.

The congress will deal with the rights of people with intellectual disabilities. These

rights should become reality all over the world, hence the motto of the congress:

Inclusion – Transforming Global Rights into Action.

The rights of the UN Convention should become law in all countries. That is why

people from around the world are meeting in Berlin to exchange their experiences

and knowledge.

People with disabilities, their family members and experts all have diff erent

experiences. If we listen to each other, we can learn a lot. If we come together,

we are stronger and can indeed make rights become reality.

For self-advocates there will be a preparation meeting on 15 June 2010 before

the World Congress begins. Of course, international accessibility rules will be

followed throughout the whole congress so that all participants can benefi t from it.

We very much hope to see you next year in Berlin!

Welcome Addresses

Welcome by the presidents of the associations

organising Inclusion International’s 2010 World Congress

Dear friends from around the world,

We are pleased to invite you to the 15 th World Congress of Inclusion International.

Inclusion Europe aisbl. and Lebenshilfe, Germany are very privileged to organise this

major event in support of the Inclusion movement.

The 15 th World Congress takes place at a major turning point in history: It is the fi rst

World Congress of a new era, in which the United Nations Convention on the Rights

of People with Disabilities is in eff ect. Approved in 2006 by the United Nations

General Assembly, the Convention has now been ratifi ed by more than 70 countries

worldwide.

We now have to ensure that the spirit and objectives of the Convention are put into

action in favour of people with intellectual disabilities, their family members and

friends. This is a worldwide challenge!

The congress also coincides with the 50 th anniversary of Inclusion International.

Therefore it will refl ect upon 50 years of hard work by Inclusion International,

the impact of the United Nations Convention and our vision of an inclusive

community for all.

Take a look at our preliminary programme, where you will fi nd an attractive array

of speakers, plenary sessions, informal meetings, workshops and social activities

for people with intellectual disabilities, their family members, volunteers, academic

experts and service providers.

The Congress aims to create an inclusive community. In addition to the formal

programme, there will also be plenty of time for having fun! Space and time for

interaction, informal meetings and social and cultural events is also foreseen

throughout the lively four-day programme.

Join us at the congress to learn about best practices and share your knowledge with

people from all over the world. We are thrilled to invite you to participate in this

major event and look forward to welcoming you in Berlin!

Easy-to-read summaries of the diff erent

disabilities to prepare for the congress.

At any time during the congress, sessions with

diff erent levels of accessibility will be available.

In the programme overview these are indicated

as follows:

AAA Highest level of accessibility, plain

language, more time for discussion, use

The 15 th World Congress of Inclusion International

Welcome to the Estrel Hotel and Convention Center Berlin

The Estrel Berlin is Europe’s largest convention,

entertainment and hotel complex with 1,125 rooms

and suites. It is home to a multifunctional

convention centre and the successful live show

“Stars in Concert“.

Trees, terraces, bridges and a central fountain with

the atmosphere of an Italian piazza create a lively

meeting place full of light within the main entrance

hall of the hotel. Around the piazza fountain you

will fi nd a wide range of national and international

restaurants and meeting places.

The main hall is surrounded by four imposing wings

to accommodate the rooms which were refurbished

extensively on the occasion of the Estrel’s

10 th anniversary in 2005. The rooms and suites boast

a distinctive style not least because of the many

original works by Russian artists and antiques. The

hotel rooms off er a generous 27 to 34 sqm of living

space. They are equipped with a large desk and

direct dial telephone, with a mailbox, TV, video, radio

and highspeed internet access. Rooms for people

with a disability are also available.

The services off ered at the hotel are rounded off by

a sauna and fi tness area, business center, a SIXT car

rental station, a concierge service, a 24-hour security

service and a mini-supermarket.

Without leaving the building, a glass covered

bridge brings you to the Estrel Convention Center

where the congress will take place. The sessions

will be held in many conference rooms which

reveal an array of communication, information and

entertainment.

The multifunctional Estrel Congress Centre off ers

the latest technology with digital TV transmission,

large-screen projectors, simultaneous interpretation

facilities, lighting and stage equipment.

The Estrel is looking forward to welcoming the

participants of the 15 th World Congress of Inclusion

International and proud to host the congress from

16–19 June 2010.

15 th World Congress of Inclusion International | 15


Berlin

City life

Berlin reveals itself as an open-minded city,

committed to the inclusion of people with

disabilities. Many train stations and buses have been

equipped with barrier-free access for wheelchairs.

Other areas of life have also been adapted and

were built to grant easy access to all areas such as

cinemas, theatres or shopping malls. People with

disabilities have arranged their own projects in

theatre groups, clubs or various self-help groups.

Bus and tram

The public transportation of Berlin (BVG and S-Bahn)

has done a lot to make transportation for people

with disabilities more convenient. Many suburban

train stations are equipped with elevators or ramps,

to provide easy access to the platforms. Most buses

for public transportation in Berlin are equipped with

a ramp that can be lowered. The ramps are placed at

the entrance in the middle of the bus. The transport

network and city maps of the public transportation

of Berlin BVG and S-Bahn (suburban train) show all

stations accessible for wheelchairs.

Cafés and restaurants

Berlin’s gastronomy is still growing. The

famous districts “Mitte”, “Prenzlauer Berg” and

16 | 15 th World Congress of Inclusion International

“Friedrichshain” have more and more restaurants

and cafés which are disability-friendly. They

have barrier-free access and toilets accessible for

wheelchairs.

The café “Blisse” is a location which is very accessible

for people with disabilities and a popular meeting

point in the district of “Wilmersdorf”.

Shopping, cinema, theatres and more

The shopping malls opened in recent years are

adjusted to the needs of people with disabilities

such as the “Potsdamer-

Platz-Arkaden”, the

“Gesundbrunnen-Center”

or the “Schönhauser Allee

Arkaden”. The malls are

equipped with automatic

doors, large elevators and

accessible lavatories.

Many cinemas were built

with the needs of people

with disabilities in mind. The

“Potsdamer Platz” in particular

off ers accessible locations

such as music theatres,

cinemas and many more.
