PARVIS updates, November 2021

A video on Equal Right to Work is currently available in 11 languages. A scene-by-scene description replacing audio description, has been added in the comment box under each video. Please subscribe to the PARVIS YouTube Channel and re-share the English videos on your website and/or social media, so that we can raise awareness of these important rights in as many European countries as possible!

A new video on Right to Culture and Sports will be available in January. In addition, we have the opportunity to provide you campaign material on Access to Culture, including tweets and visuals that you can translate and use in your own social media accounts, such as Twitter or Facebook.

A ‘Rights-Reporting’ podcast, of which the first episode "Rights on the labour market" [click on the link to listen to it], aired November 30. This episode includes a presentation of a case where this right has been violated, as well as guests from Montenegro and the Netherlands to discuss how different tools can improve the situation. We encourage you to translate podcast episode transcript and disseminate it with the podcast link on your social media accounts.

Four Info-sessions aimed at blind and partially sighted (BPS) citizens in at least 10 European countries will be organized in 2022, of which the first one at the beginning of next year. These info-sessions will detail mechanisms BPS citizens can refer to if they consider their rights have been denied. 

We are also currently planning for the project’s biggest activity – an awareness-raising decentralized event on political participation organised on Europe Day (9 May 2022) in 10 different countries, aimed at decision makers. As this event also includes a joint media action, online media training will be provided to participating organisations.

If you are interested in obtaining campaing material for your social media channels, participating in our upcoming events, such as the info-sessions or decentralized event, or learning more about the PARVIS activities, kindly contact PARVIS Project Coordinator Mariem Sene.
