Views News Summer 2018

Dear members, partners and readers,

We hope your Summer is going well and you enjoy the sun.
We would like to inform you or remind you that our annual General Assembly will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, on the 22nd of September 2018.
On the agenda, for this newsletter, we have five articles.
A first article will report on the Music Key project which took place in Greece.
Then, an article about the collaboration of the EVS 2017-2018 projects, Elin and Corto. They both did awareness-raising activities about the visual impairment. They also talked to young people with low vision to inform them about future opportunities and internships available to them.
The third article was written by Fabrice Beaumont, he works for Romans International (France), an association that seeks to collaborate with VIEWS International. To do this, Fabrice came to Belgium for 10 days to do a job shadowing .
The fourth article talks about the transnational meeting that took place in Granada for the project "VIP and new technologies: easy access to job market" while the last article talks about the transnational meeting in Warsaw that took place in June for the
project "Beyond Barriers and Borders".

We hope you will enjoy these articles.
