One of new items is our NEWSLETTER, which will be sent out monthly to some 2,100

With the Foundation’s first newsletter we will inform you of some of the latest

updates on legislation, notable events and the latest news in the Design for All
sector, accessibility, ergonomics, etc. I hope it will prove useful and
It would be most helpful for us if you could send your evaluations and
See you soon!.
