What needs to be done to improve education and training programmes so they are more inclusive? How to tackle gender inequalities among persons with disabilities in access to education, skills development programmes and the labour market? What is the potential of the new green and digitised economy to promote more inclusive and accessible markets for persons with disabilities?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this interactive panel.
