WeThe15 named International Campaign of the Year at 2022 Sport Industry Awards

WeThe15, which aims to be the biggest ever human rights movement to represent the world’s 1.2 billion persons with disabilities, was named the International Campaign of the Year at the 2022 Sport Industry Awards in May.

Held in London, the prestigious annual awards celebrate achievements in the global sports industry, from the delivery of sports events to using sport as a catalyst for social change. Launched ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, WeThe15 is a decade-long movement that aims to end discrimination towards persons with disabilities and campaign globally for disability visibility, accessibility, inclusion, and equality of rights.

Global Disability Innovation Hub is a founding partner of WeThe15 - which brings together the biggest coalition ever of international organisations from the worlds of sport, human rights, policy, business, arts, and entertainment, including representative organisations of persons with disabilities. Together they will work with governments, businesses, and the public over the next decade to initiate change.
