CE-Spaces4All

Project overview

Accessible Spaces for All – Improving Accessibility of Tourism for Persons with Disabilities in Central Europe

Accessible tourism allows people with disabilities to travel independently. But there is still often a lack of awareness for their needs. The CE-Spaces4All project connects public authorities, the tourism sector and people with disabilities to improve governance for a more accessible tourism. The partners develop a digital tool for mapping barriers in rural regions and provide these with a joint strategy and local action plans to better integrate accessibility considerations in territorial planning.

Roadmap

1

Our vision

Travelling for everyone without distinction.

2

Specific problem

Min 20 % of people in the EU live with a limit that creates a travel restrictive conditions. These people would like to travel by themselves without dependency on specialized agencies. We are talking about people on wheelchairs, seniors, parents with babies in stroller, persons with vision or hearing impairment or low vision or hard hearing.

3

Idea

CE-Spaces4All will address key barriers of accessible tourism for everyone that is necessary to remove: lack of awareness, capacities and cooperation of multi-level cross-sectoral stakeholders for territorial planning for accessible tourism and lack of involvement of people with disabilities (PWD), lack of standardised data for evidence-based accessibility planning, and lack of proper services for PWD for independent tourism travel.

4

Step by step

WP1: Developing joint tool for informed territorial planning of accessible tourism. WP2: Developing tools and services for persons with disabilities for independent tourism travel. WP3: Mainstreaming and policy uptake.

5

Solution

Znojmo view, woman on a wheelchair

The project will bring Web Accessibility Viewer tool for policy planners for mapping and visualising barriers to accessibility; its application in pilot regions will result in a catalogue of barriers. As a result, raised capacities and improved cooperation of stakeholders will lead to better governance for policy and territorial planning of accessible tourism, as well as to improved public services for PWD. This will remove accessible tourism development barriers in the regions, and improve their territorial and social cohesion.
