Finished campaigns and activities

VISAL

Visually impaired (VI) seniors are one of the most marginalised communities in terms of lifelong learning. The VISAL training course is tailor-made to both the age- and disability-related specific learning needs of elderly VI persons.

REC18

In 2018, EBU continued to contribute to the EU policy-making process, in particular since the recruitment of our new Head of Campaigning. Our campaigning work mainly focused on the European Accessbility Act, Audiovisual Media Services, the Marrakesh Treaty (access to books), the accessibility of lifts, and silent cars. Twitter was extensively used as a complementary tool to have blind and partially-sighted citizens’ concerns fully taken on board by European decision makers. Good practices on the employment of blind and partially-sighted persons were also compiled into a report. Finally, data was collected on UNCRPD article 33 “National implementation and monitoring” and a report on the implementation of article 26 “Habilitation and rehabilitation” was delivered.

REC17

The EBU 2017 work programme (shortened in “REC17”) dispatches activities into four main categories: campaigning, reports, capacity-building and communication.
