Down Syndrome Association of Turkey is happy to invite you to the 10th European Down Syndrome Congress in 2016 in İstanbul, Turkey. The Congress will be a central meeting point for families and professionals working on the subject of Down syndrome all over the world. Thanks to the strategic geographic position of Istanbul, participants not only from Europe but also Middle East and Asia region will have the opportunity to easily participate to this important event.
The 10th EDSC 2016 will provide a platform for introducing and discussing priority issues such as new research, global efforts aiming to transform the perception of the society on DS, creating an equal opportunity atmosphere for people with DS as they go through life stages where they have different needs such as education, employment opportunities, health services, recreational opportunities, etc. and, last but not the least, challenging the society’s perception of Down syndrome to provide a more positive direction.
Like these two continents reaching out to meet, we seek ways to connect people with each other.
For the congress the theme is “Building Bridges For a Better Future”. The motto is “We add +1 value to life.”
