Equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities

We also want to improve the conditions for social enterprises. It will be easier and faster to get the tools needed for the work. Employers should be able to be sure that they can receive good support if needed. 

Equality right in the EU

The Environment Party is working to bring the anti-discrimination directive that was previously halted finally into place in the EU and to strengthen the accessibility directive. We also want:

The environmental party rules

In government, we have made several efforts in 2014-2018 for everyone’s right to participate fully in society:
