Meeting the President: Swiss Deafblind Education Day

A great success: The 1st Swiss Deafblind Education Day on the Bundesplatz in Bern led to various encounters between people with deafblindness and politicians. Even the President of the Swiss Confederation entered into a conversation. The campaign marking the 50th anniversary of professional deafblind education in Switzerland calls for a national report on the whereabouts of deafblind children and the quality of their support. Thanks to the campaign, all 246 members of parliament in Switzerland have also taken note of Deafblind International’s worldwide network.  Watch the short film.
