Mission EBU works towards an accessible and inclusive society with equal opportunities for blind and partially sighted people to fully participate in all aspects of social, economic, cultural and political life.

With its large network of member organizations in 45 European countries, EBU brings together a wealth of expertise related to visual impairment and its implications on the daily lives of millions of Europeans with sight loss.

EBU provides a platform for its member organizations for the exchange of information, cooperation and collective actions to promote the rights and needs of blind and partially sighted persons.
Description

EBU is a non-governmental, non profit-making European organization founded in 1984. One of the six regional bodies of the World Blind Union, it is the only organization representing the interests of blind and partially-sighted people in Europe.

Awards The EBU led INTERGEN project has been chosen as an example of best practice in the field of social inclusion and has been selected for participation in the final conference of the European Thematic Network "Inclusion", which will take place in Birmingham on the 20 June 2012. Through initiatives such as this conference the project can continue to be exploited and adapted. Further details of the project, and all the above-mentiond documents, are available from the website, http://www.intergenerations.eu/. We take this opportunity to encourage all our members and interested parties to examine, use and adapt these documents to their own needs.
