2016 World Autism Awareness Day - Autism and the 2030 Agenda: Inclusion and Neurodiversity
Autism and other forms of disability are part of the human experience that contributes to human diversity. As such, the United Nations has emphasised the need to mainstream disability in the Organization’s new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted in September 2015.
This year’s observance will look ahead to 2030 and reflect on the new Sustainable Development Goals and their implications for improving the lives of people with autism.
