The World MS Day map is filling up with events. Some organisations don’t have their own website or Facebook page where they can tell you about their plans so they’ve asked us to list them here instead.

The Lithuanian MS Union will celebrate their 15 year Anniversary and World MS Day on the 5th of June in the Belmondo park, Vilnius with an event called ‘Life through pink glasses.’ They will gather with pink glasses and white balloons. At the end of performance they will hitch glasses to the balloons and launch them into the air.

European MS Platform
The European MS Platform (EMSP), together with MEP Ádám Kósa, Co-Chair of the Disability Intergroup in the European Parliament, is launching the Call to Action on Access to Employment for People with Multiple Sclerosis. Although all European countries have protective social legislation, in practice people with multiple sclerosis are often disregarded on the current job market, experiencing inequality and lack of opportunities.
The European Employment Pact for People with MS will break down barriers that people with multiple sclerosis face in the workplace and address the lack of access to employment.

EMSP calls on all members of the Parliament, as well as private stakeholders and advocacy organisations to endorse the Pact and support its recommendations. The event will be held in the European Parliament on May 26.
