Access Cities Award 2015 press conference

03 December - 03 December 2014, Brussels (DG Justice)


On 3 December the European Journalism Centre (EJC) is organising a press corner at the award ceremony of the Access City Award 2015. The event will be held in Brussels on the occasion of the European Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Access City Award is an initiative of the European Commission in partnership with the European Disability Forum. It aims to showcase and reward cities with over 50 000 inhabitants which take exemplary initiatives to improve accessibility in the urban environment for persons with disabilities, in the context of an aging population.

The Award is given to the city that has demonstrably improved accessibility in fundamental aspects of city living, with a coherent approach over four key areas of accessibility: the built environment and public spaces; transport and related infrastructure; information and communication, including new technologies
(ICT); public facilities and services. The winning city is committed to continued improvements in accessibility in a sustainable way and can act as a role model to encourage the adoption of good practices in other European cities. Since 2010, 171 cities have participated in the 4 previous editions of the Access City Award.
