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”.
