Webinar: ‘DeSIGNed Europe for Deafblind Women’

On the European Deafblind Day, October 22nd 2020.,  Webinar “DeSIGNed Europe for Deafblind Women” was organised by the European Deafblind Union – EDbU and Croatian association of deafblind persons, DODIR“.
Deafblind persons face many obstacles and challenges on a daily basis, but deafblind women also have to deal with multiple discrimination and inequality – based on their gender, disability, sensory deprivation and socio-economic exclusion.

COVID-19 and Deafblindness. Recommendations on inclusive policies from the global deafblind community.

In these times of turmoil, with the whole world severely affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, combined with other critical incidents like the recent earthquake in Zagreb, Croatia, we must ensure that those who are the most left behind, neglected, vulnerable and exposed to double isolation in any crisis, persons with deafblindness, are also equally protected according to Article 11 of the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
