Tell people across Europe of our achievements.
The European Blind Union website is offering you the opportunity to tell visually impaired people, employers and policy makers across Europe about the huge range of jobs undertaken by visually impaired people.
There are two ways your country can take part:
1. Provide us with web-links to your own national websites that provide information about jobs that visually impaired people are doing;
2. Provide some examples that will be included on the main EBU website. You can look at some current examples by going to: http://www.euroblind.org/jobwebsite/siteintro.htm . If you have some examples, we need them in a specific format in English. But the amount of information is short and should not be difficult to provide. The format details are below. We would also welcome digital photographs wherever possible. Please send your examples to email@example.com and quote "EBU Employment Website" in the subject line.
If you are attending the conference in Cyprus, Penny will be there talking about the website, taking inputs direct and helping with any translation problems.
Take this opportunity to tell others about the success of visually impaired people at work in your country - that employment is possible, fulfilling and helps with independence.
