WDSD 2020 “We decide!” – Denmark

»Jeg beslutter at følge mine drømme om at blive kendt og berømt i mit samfund, uanset hvad andre måtte mene, at mine grænser er.
Jeg beslutter at dele mine meninger, tekster og følelser med mine venner og familie – og endda med mine følgere på de sociale medier.
Jeg beslutter at nyde at have fans og skrive autografer.
Jeg beslutter at være mig.«

“I decide to follow my dreams of becoming well-known and famous in my community, no matter what others might think my limits are.
I decide to share my opinions, lyrics and feelings with my friends and family – and even my followers on social media.
I decide to enjoy having fans and writing autographs.
I decide to be me!”

Karl Emil (18 years)

All people with Down syndrome should have full participation in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives.
Effective and meaningful participation is a core human rights principle supported by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Starting on 1 March 2020, we show 21 examples of people with Down syndrome from across Europe to make clear: “We Decide”.
