haptiBOOK International Online Meeting 2021

Exchanging experiences and promoting the production of tactile children books worldwide

The German Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted (DBSV) is organizing the haptiBOOK International Online Meeting 2021, which will be held on ZOOM on Saturday 12th June 2021.

The meeting aims to exchange experiences and good practices in the production of tactile books for blind, visually impaired and sighted children and to promote the production of this kind of books worldwide.

The program of the meeting will consist on the one hand of short presentations by the participating organizations that would like to share their experience in specific aspects of tactile book production and on the other hand of cooperative sessions in open space format, in which all participants will be encouraged to contribute with their good practices, questions or ideas to the development of this field.

The goal is to promote mutual learning and networking and to encourage countries that do not yet have tactile books to get started in the production.

The DBSV would like to welcome representatives from organizations that want to share their experiences and also learn from the good practices of other participants, as well as organizations from countries with no experience that would be interested in getting started in this field.
