International Face Equality Week is taking place from 17 – 24 May. This annual campaign is organised by Face Equality International – ECO is a founder member. Head over to their website to find out what is planned and join them on Facebook or Twitter. The theme this year is education and coinciding with this FEI has just launched an exciting open access education hub which is a great resource for use in schools, in the workplace. – and for general promotion of ‘Face Equality’ as a basic human rights issue.
‘Disfigurement is a globally neglected human rights issue. It’s also an issue that many people don’t feel equipped to talk about, which makes growth towards inclusion difficult.’
