International Day of Persons with Disabilities: the City of Geneva develops universal accessibility
In December 2019, the Administrative council introduced a policy of universal accessibility aimed at ensuring greater inclusion and participation of inhabitants with disabilities. During the course of 2020, a municipal commission worked on implementing priority projects in this field. An awareness programme was launched among the staff of the municipal administration. The City has introduced collaborative measures with a number of different partners and experts, working together to develop inclusive solutions with regard to the different municipal projects and facilities. On the occasion of International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December, let us take stock of the progress made.
