ENIL Newsletter, August 2016

Editorial Update

Dear readers,

Deeply saddened by the loss of our great colleague and friend – Peter Lambreghts, ENIL is presenting you this month’s newsletter. You can read some words from his farewell that took place yesterday, 25th August, together with a video slideshow made with love for Peter.

The next article is a commemoration of the victims in Sagamihara, Japan. ENIL sends condolences to the families of the 19 disabled people, who were killed in the horrible attack.

Below, you can find the report from the ENIL Youth Network study session on sexuality and relationships in April this year. Included in this newsletter is also a ‘watchdog’ article from one of ENIL members in the UK – Roland Benjamin.

Last but not least, we announce the dates, main topics and planned activities for the ENIL 2017 Freedom Drive! Mark the dates in your calendars and join us in one year time!

We hope you will find this newsletter interesting and encourage you to share your feedback at secretariat@enil.eu

Thank you!

Dilyana Deneva, Newsletter editor
