ENIL Newsletter, May 2016

Editorial Update

Welcome to the May issue of ENIL's Newsletter!

ENIL’s highlight this month was the 5th May – the third European Independent Living Day – marked by hundreds of people throughout Europe. Thirty countries joined ENIL's campaign - greater participation in comparison to 2015. Various activities and creative ideas made the day a triumph of the Independent Living movement.

We hope you enjoy our May Newsletter, which is shorter and includes some articles you haven’t seen before. We welcome your thoughts and suggestions on how to make our Newsletters even better. Please e-mail us at secretariat@enil.eu. Thank you and enjoy!
