Building Momentum for Equality and Inclusion in Science

The Science in Braille campaign is an international consortium of Blind STEAM professionals, engaged in academia, and the public and private sectors, advocating for the equitable inclusion of blind individuals in education and socio-economic sustainable development programs as agents of change, not only as beneficiaries.

Why Science in Braille, and of what practical use can this be? Through this campaign, blind and low-vision STEM academics from around the globe come together and unite their experience, becoming agents of positive social and academic change. Science in Braille is transforming the societal perception of people with disabilities from only being recipients of benefits. This campaign is demonstrating by action that people with disabilities are vibrant, contributing instigators of change whose full engagement greatly enriches the global community.

Our International Commitment

Circle which represents the 17 UN Sustainable Goals

With great momentum and interest in the role of Blind Professionals and Experts can play to accelerate the socio-economic sustainable development, we work hand-in-hand with the International Community and multi-stakeholders to promote United Nations 2030 Agenda and its 17 Global Goals.
