2007 - European Year of Equal Opportunities

The European Union has designated 2007 as ‘European Year of Equal Opportunities for All’. The Year aims at making people in the EU more aware of their rights not to be discriminated against and at promoting equal opportunities in various areas, from healthcare to the workplace. Activities at national and EU level will focus on many grounds of discrimination, including discrimination based on sexual orientation.
