AccessibleEU European Event - Smart Cities: Enhancing Urban Design and Mobility for All (24-NW-EU-01)

The main objective of this AccessibleEU networking event is to raise awareness about the importance of accessibility in urban design across Europe.

It aims to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by people with disabilities navigating urban environments and to promote inclusive practices in urban planning and mobility. By bringing together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds, the event would catalise positive change to enhance urban design and mobility for all.

Recognising the importance of urban tourism to the visitor economy, the event will also examine ways in which cities are working to ensure equal access for all to urban streets, heritage buildings and monuments, for the benefit of local communities and visitors, making use of participatory design approaches and smart data.

  • Target audience: Policymakers, organisations and professionals linked to the world of urban design, urban mobility, urban planning and construction. City managers, DMOs, cultural institutions. Professional associations, societies, and organisations representing professionals and experts in charge of developing accessible infrastructures in urban environments, and those especially linked to design, mobility, engineering and architecture. Representatives of members of civil society. Universities and academics working in accessible urban design and mobility. Trainers of future accessibility professionals in Europe.
