"We have a dream. We want to share this dream with you. The time for a positive change has come. You can drive this change. The wind of change first blew 20 years ago, when the idea to organise a congress for persons with disabilities was first voiced in Berlin. Since then, thousands of people all over the world have attended congresses in Europe, South America and Asia. The congresses became the starting point for positive change in the lives of people with special needs in many countries". - Thomas Kraus, initiatior of congresses of person with disabilities world wide since 1998.
