Hello everyone !

EuroVIP Conference

The European Volunteer Inclusion Programme (EuroVIP) is a two-year-long strategic partnership with Erasmus+ which works with five partner organisations across Europe. The aim of the project is to strengthen the recognition of skills and competencies acquired by young adults (17 – 30 years old) during volunteer activities and to promote them as valuable for their entrance into the labour market.

Social Inclusion with European Student Network

When a fellow EVS volunteer asked me to help her run some social inclusion events for her association, of course I agreed. Joanna is from Portugal and like me she works for an NGO in Belgium for nine months as part of her European Voluntary Service. She is based in Brussels and works for the Erasmus Student’s Network (ESN), the biggest student’s network in Europe.

My first Experience in the Dark

A friend of mine invited me to participate to a dinner in the dark in Liège. I had already heard about this kind of event and was really curious about it. Well, I have to say that it was really a funny and amazing experience.

The organizers welcomed us in an extremely friendly way. It was really fun to stay for two hours in complete darkness. Of course, the way you are moving in this unusual environment is very slow and hesitant.

First Experience in the Dark

My name is William, I am 27 years old, I am Belgian and I don’t have any sight difficulties. It was my first experience of this kind.

ICC Day You Have to Try it Once

It was a free event and open to everyone: pupils, students, accompanying person and all who wantd to learn something about the information and communications technologies were welcome.

New roles in the Board of Administrators

As I promised you last October, I’m back with some news about the Board of Administrators of VIEWS International.

The main change in our organization is the role of the president. In fact, as you probably remember, last December our former president Jessica Schröder has been discharged by the Board of Administrators because she decided not to reapply for a new mandate.

The board of administrators has designated Michael Thornton from the United Kingdom as the new president of VIEWS International.

Dinner in the dark 21 November 2015

It has always success. We made it again.

About 30 people have tented this unforgettable experience.

They were some visually impaired persons who wanted just to enjoy it and some new people for whom it was a nice experience.

We had also two new guides. Selma our volunteer from Turkey and Larisa a blind Romanian Erasmus student.

Nice that other people could enjoy it.
