Our History

In 1965, during the second international deafblind seminar (Kalundborg, Denmark), a proposal was made to be part of The International Council of Educators of Blind Youth (ICEBY), which was the education committee within The World Council for the Welfare of the Blind (WCWB).

The proposal was sanctioned, and was valid from the third international conference (Sint-Michielsgestel, Holland) in 1968.
