The European Union of the Deaf (EUD) was proud to be coordinating the Written Declaration 35/2011 campaign on accessible 112 emergency services. This Written Declaration was initiated by the Romanian Deaf Association and is supported by EENA, the European Emergency Number Association and EFHOH, the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People.
It is EUD's task, in co-operation with the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who support the Written Declaration, to convince as many MEPs as possible to sign WD112. For this we send Deaf people with interpreters to Strasbourg to lobby directly.
The Written Declaration 35/2011 on the need for accessible 112 emergency services has been formally adopted by the President of the European Parliament on 17th November 2011 with an unprecedented record number of 483 signatures from MEPs.
