World Book and Copyright Day is an opportunity to highlight the power of books to promote our vision of knowledge societies that are inclusive, pluralistic, equitable, open and participatory for all citizens.
It is said that how a society treats its most vulnerable is a measure of its humanity. When we apply this measure to the availability of books to those with visual impairments and those with learning or physical disabilities (with different causes), we are confronted with what can only be described as a ‘book famine’.
According to the World Blind Union approximately one in every 200 people on Earth—39 million of us—cannot see. Another 246 million have severely reduced vision. These ‘visually impaired persons’ or ‘persons with a print disability’ can access an estimated 10% of all written information and literary works that sighted people can read.
Poorly designed or inaccessible books also limit reading and comprehension of those who have learning disabilities. According to the International Dyslexia Association, 3-5 percent of the school population requires special accommodations and support.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Sustainable Development Goals mark a paradigm shift in recognizing the right of disabled people to access books, knowledge and cultural life on an equal basis as others.
With the framework of the convention, UNESCO is working to promote a better understanding of issues related to disability and to mobilize support for the recognition of the dignity, rights and wellbeing of persons with disabilities and of the benefits of their integration in society.
This is the spirit guiding Conakry, Guinea, which has been designated World Book Capital 2017, in recognition of its programme to promote reading among youth and underprivileged sections of the population.
With Conarky, and our international partners, the International Publishers Association and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, let us join together to celebrate books as the desire to share ideas and knowledge, to inspire understanding, tolerance and inclusive societies.
This is UNESCO’s message on World Book and Copyright Day.

The Literacy Department within the Gozo College in collaboration with the Occupational Therapy Department of the Gozo General Hospital organised two parental meetings aimed at K1 parents of students attending the Gozo College schools and Gozo church schools. Ms. Elaine Ciantar, Head of Department Literacy and Ms. Theresien Mizzi, Occupational Therapist shared with parents practical activities they can develop with their children at home to help them enhance their gross motor and fine motor skills in preparation for the development of writing.
A selection of resources currently available in the Kindergarten classes of the Gozo College were also shown to parents. These resources are being shared amongst the Kindergarten classes through a rotation system and they allow for a hands-on approach to teach pre-writing skills. The College embarked on a multisensory approach to develop pre-writing skills in the Kindergarten classes where students are being exposed to different forms and textures for that special tactile input.
A booklet (Activities for the development of pre writing and writing skills) summarising the practical activities which can be done at home was given to parents through the individual schools.
