The concept of the Conference

The concept of an inclusive or accessible environment is based on the conviction that the right to life and social mobility in society is a fundamental human right which provides a basis for greater social justice through the integration of vulnerable groups of population.

The principle of integration involves dialogue between different systems of social order to ensure an accessible environment and reduce social inequality.

Social policy aimed at improving education, health and welfare of citizens is impossible without social inclusion, which involves the expansion of rights and the availability of accessible environment for people with visual impairments and other disabilities.

The aim of the conference is to search for technological and social means of rehabilitation and mitigation of barriers of inequality for people with visual impairments and other disabilities.


Key speakers: leading experts on inclusive education in Russia, CIS, EU.
