Mobility in cities

Aid and Development
Date: Thursday, 20 September 2018

Venue: Europaid - Ground floor  |  City: Bruxelles

Perspectives from persons with disabilities in Europe and the Global South
In the context of the European mobility week, we will turn the spotlight on persons with disabilities, who face many barriers in their daily travel. This may jeopardize their participation in society, and their access to services and opportunities, such as education or employment. Safe and inclusive mobility is a crucial component for achieving sustainable development, especially SDG 11 on cities. In rapidly growing cities, no one should be left behind.
