More than 1.6 million wheelchair users live in Germany.
It is not their wheelchair which disables them, but inaccessible places.

Together we are creating more accessibility, with solutions for more inclusive cities and town.

Accessibility and inclusion are essential elements of any Smart City. In an era of digitalisation everybody has the possibility to contribute and to make his or her hometown more inclusive.

Let’s work together to improve the living conditions of people with disabilities and senior citizens.
