EUD Executive Director Corner

This month will be full of signing of co-operation agreements with various organisations!

EUD Workshops, Seminar and GA, at Copenhagen, are now fully booked with over 100 people attending and it will be an exciting event. Full report will be with you at a later stage. During the EUD GA, there will be a signing of a new Memorandum of Understanding with European Union of the Deaf Youth (EUDY) as the current one expires this year. EUD consider supporting EUDY as one of our vital roles in empowering and encouraging young deaf people here at EUD Brussels office. And also there will be a new co-operation agreement between EUD and World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) to strengthen on how both organisations can work together for the benefit of all deaf communities across Europe and rest of the world. EUD President Berglind Stefánsdóttir and WFD President Colin Allen will sign the agreement during the GA, however Colin will be present through live video link from his office at Australia.

And another co-operation agreement with EFHoH, EuroCIU, FEPEDA and EDbN will be signed during EDF AGA also at Copenhagen one week after EUD's GA. EUD will be represented at EDF AGA and the topics discussed will be focused on the implementation of UNCRPD, European Accessibility Act, accessible public websites and European Mobility Card.
