The third joint WBU-ICEVI General Assembly will be held at the Hotel Marriott in Madrid Spain, from 19th June to 24th June 2020. The General Assembly will be hosted by ONCE, the National Organisation of the Blind in Spain. ONCE is a long term partner member of both the World Blind Union and the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment, and we look forward to working with ONCE to prepare an impressive program for the six day assembly.

The program of events will be as follows:

  • 19th and 20th June 2020:  WBU General Assembly
  • 21st and 22nd June 2020:  WBU-ICEVI Joint Days of Presentations
  • 23rd and 24th June 2020:  ICEVI Paper Presentation Days and General Assembly
