#WeThe15 is sport’s largest ever human rights campaign and aims to transform the lives of the one billion people globally who have a disability.
#WeThe15 is the biggest coalition ever of international organisations from the world of sport, human rights, policy, and business to initiate change for the planet’s largest marginalised group.
This 10-year campaign, which will launch prior to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and aligns with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, aims to use sport as a tool to put disability at the heart of the inclusion agenda.
By breaking down barriers and putting an end to discrimination the objective is to make the world’s 15% with a disability active, visible and contributing members of global society.
