Dear members, partners and readers,

We hope your summer has gone well.

First, let us take this opportunity to extend our best wishes to Nicolas Gérimont, who has finished working in the office in view of taking his career in a new and exciting direction. It was a pleasure to work with Nicolas and we thank him for all of his work during his time at VIEWS and we wish him the best for the future.

And now, let us introduce Corentin Labaye, who is the new Administrative Assistant for VIEWS International. He is 30 years old and lives in Liège. Corentin already knows Views from previous international and local collaborations. We look forward to working with Corentin and to be sure many of our members and partners will meet him soon.

We have five articles for this September newsletter.

A first article will present a European seminar which took place in Frankfurt, "The visually impaired Campus - Studying in Europe without borders".

Then, a second article will inform us about the European Solidarity Corps, the new program which replaces the old Erasmus + program for volunteering projects The new programme offers different possibilities of volunteering and traineeship. Find out what you can do with the European Solidarity Corps..

The third article will be about a video tutorial created by Elin and Corentin. Elin will teach you how to make up properly when you are blind or visually impaired. follow Elin’s tips and with closed eyes your face will become brilliant.

The fourth article is a call for volunteers for a project in India (Kerala). Would you like to discover other horizons further then Europe? Spending some
time volunteering in a far away country can be the good way to get deeper knowledge of its culture, habits and societal situation; for sure at least of
those people with whom this project will bring you in contact. Take a look at the call for volunteers for India in Kerala.

The fifth is a call for participation for the training about the VIP-Tech-Job project about which you have already learned in previous issues of our newsletter. The aim of this activity is to test the new platform. Find out more about the call for participants for the VIP-Tech-Job.
