Sense International to host the 2015 Deafblind International world conference

20 December 2012

Following on from the success of the 2011 Deafblind International (DbI) World Conference in Brazil, the 2015 conference will take place in Bucharest, Romania.

Sense International and Sense International (Romania) will lead on hosting the conference, in partnership with DbI. We will be supported by a range of Romanian organisations including disability networks such as Reninco and the National Council for Disability, non-governmental organisations, universities working in the field of deafblindness and government ministries.

Hosting the conference in Central Europe will raise awareness of the successes and challenges for deafblind people in Romania and more broadly in the region.

We are also enthusiastic about hosting the World Conference in a post-communist country. It will be an opportunity for Sense and the Romanian Government to demonstrate to an international audience the significant transformation that has occurred towards disability in the public policy arena since the Ceau┼čescu era.
