Current Activities

REC19

In 2019, EBU and its members are implementing activities to foster the development of an inclusive Europe, where blind and partially sighted (BPS) citizens have the same rights and opportunities as other citizens.

Accessible Voting

Persons with disabilities have the right to participate in elections on an equal basis. Nonetheless, visually impaired citizens cannot vote independently and secretly in most European countries. The EBU’s AVA Project (“Accessible Voting Awareness-Raising”) aims to solve this problem.

EBU Statement on the European Elections 2019

With this Statement, we call on political leaders to pay attention to the demands of blind and partially sighted persons in Europe in the campaign for the European elections of 2019, and during the following five years.

Braille Promotion

EBU promotes braille and braille literacy as essential tools for the autonomy of blind and partially sighted individuals. We are currently engaged in an activity to collect good practice in the area of Braille teaching as well as evidence of the importance of Braille literacy.
