Under the theme of “Digital Inclusion”, we return to you introducing our third edition of GREAT, through which we will highlight the latest topics in the field of ICT accessibility in Arabic.
Due to the current circumstances resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), we had to deliver GREAT differently and innovatively – GREAT Talks. Just because you can’t travel doesn’t mean that you can’t attend our virtual accessible event!

GREAT Talks 2020 will feature several discussions that will highlight the most prominent initiatives and achievements in support of persons with disabilities and the elderly in the Arab world.
