Following the recent publication of our 2nd Global Report and our participation in the EU-funded SHAPES Project, MEP Ádám Kósa and MEP Rosa Estaràs, in collaboration with WFDB, will co-host an event in room József Antall (6Q2) of the European Parliament in Brussels on the 6th of June 2023, 14:00-16:00.
This event will be an opportunity to learn about the situation of persons with deafblindness, including good practices and recommendations for their inclusion. Moreover, the SHAPES Project, an Innovation Action funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, will be presented as a good example on how to mainstream disability in large scale projects.
International Sign Interpretation and captioning will be provided, as well as a coffee break.
