In December, EBU started a collaboration with Julius Kratky, a journalist from Austrian Broadcaster ORF Connect, called #ViewsOfLife. In this initiative, Julius interviews different people from our national members so he can give the audience a good overview of the situation of blind and partially sighted people across Europe.
After one introductory interview with our Executive Director, Lars Bosselmann, and our External Communications Officer, Nacho López, the first interviews of EBU members have already been produced: Elisa Montonen (Finland), Luboš Zajíc (Czech Republic), Reiner Delgado (Germany) and Cristina Barreto (Spain) have been the first people to tell us more about the situation of the visually impaired community in their respective countries.
Currently, we are in the process of contacting further national members so Julius can produce the following interviews. In case you want to know more about #ViewsOfLife, please visit our members section where you will find the segments that have already been produced.
