The purpose of this webinar is for visual impairment organisations to share what the most common forms of discrimination are when it comes to receiving accessible information in the areas of healthcare, employment and education in Europe and exchange on solutions and good practices to improve the situation. The outcomes of these discussions will be put down in a joint statement. The second morning of the seminar will recap PARVIS achievements and offers EBU members the opportunity for useful tools in their awareness-raising and advocacy work.
