International Disabilities Day
1st -6th and 8th Desember 2007

Independency is one of the most important things for people to play their both roles, as individual and part of society. Independent Living is a whole concept of independency for people with disabilities. This concept is not merely to fulfil their daily activities, but more, how to achieve their vision in this life. Nowadays, many people with disabilities still have not known and told their need to the people around them. In the meanwhile, those are very important things to do in achieving independency.      

Inclusive environment is a concept which the environment can accommodate all user’s need regardless their ability, age and sex. Mostly, the physical or non physical development in Indonesia have not implemented this concept, such as many school has not had curriculum which can accommodate children with special needs, public building can not be reached with people who use wheelchair, and the quota system of job vacancy for people with disabilities still can not be reached in mostly institution. Those conditions are not only create discrimination of human rights, but also close the opportunity to create comprehensively productive society which is for long term investment. 

The International Disabilities Day or IDD at 3th December is the best moment for evaluation. It is not only refer to people with disabilities in understanding about independent living, but also for many stakeholders in supporting the implementation of inclusive environment. So, BILiC as a NGO which has movement in disabilities issue, held several events with theme “Build Up Independency through Creation” to celebrate this moment.
