The IBE Day is taking place on Wednesday 1 September as part of the IEC. It consists of 3 two-hour virtual sessions on topical issues that affect the day-to-day lives of people living with epilepsy.

This virtual event will cover topics including making epilepsy a national health priority – intersectoral collaboration, empowering youth to raise their voices and best practices to address the psychosocial impact of epilepsy.

Additionally, the IBE International Golden Light Awards will be presented; the IBE Golden Light Awards recognise the contributions of people affected by epilepsy in their community and those who care for them.

We hope that the virtual experience allows more people around the globe to participate in the IBE Day. Access to these sessions is free of charge for IBE chapters and their members, but registration is necessary.

The programme for the IBE Day may be downloaded here.
