During the 9th DbI European conference on deafblindness, the chair of the EDBN, Ricard López, called several network meetings that were really successful.
One of those meetings was with the chair of the European Deafblind Union (EDBU) Sanja Tarczay. The meeting was called with intent to start working together EDBN and EDBU. As a result of the meeting two projects were planned.
The chair of the EDBN, Ricard Lopez, has made the most of his time in the Aalborg conference. During the four days of the conference he has called three very successful networking meetings.
In the first meeting, Mr. Lopez, met with some parents of deafblind children from the Nordic countries. Those parents have never been involved before in the activities for families organized by EDBN and other European associations. They found out that there has been a lack of communication but both parts are really interested in cooperating from now on. The first common project will be a sixth “Listen to Me”.
