The UN Friends of Vision “2020 and Beyond, Accelerating Vision for Everyone” was an incredibly inspiring webinar to be involved in as the MYT Programme Lead for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) Events team.

In recognition of World Sight Day, HRH The Countess of Wessex, political leaders, United Nations (UN) Ambassadors and the Executive Director of UNICEF joined with leading civil society organisations globally to hold a virtual United Nations event to discuss the issue of eye health and its importance in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a recovery from Covid-19.

I would definitely recommend reading the IAPB News or watching the full webinar available at the IAPB NGO YouTube Channel:

If you are short on time though, why not watch Stephen Fry’s iEye film shared by Clearly below:
