The aim of the conference is to present issues related to the issue of socio-vocational rehabilitation and activation of people with disabilities in the context of the 30th anniversary of the State Fund for Rehabilitation of Disabled People and the Strategy for Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030. It is also intended to exchange views on the economic, social and health effects of disability in the modern world and to propose solutions in the field of activation. In addition, the organizers' assumption is to increase social awareness in the area of ​​accessibility for people with special needs in relation to Polish and international solutions.

The subject of the conference covers the areas of economic, social and health effects of disability in terms of the 30-year operation of the State Fund for Rehabilitation of Disabled People.
