European Commission announces Access City Award Winner 2014: Gothenburg!

European CommissionOn the occasion of the European Day for people with disabilities (3 December) the European Commission announced that Gothenburg is the winner of the Access City Award 2014. Gothenburg's commitment to increasing accessibility to transport, housing, work and employment is a good example that other European cities could follow in the future. Priority is given to people with disabilities when accessible homes become available. On the employment front, some 300 workplaces are being equipped with personal aids each year. The city is also systematically working on improving public facilities, with concrete actions to make amusement parks, playgrounds and the local university more accessible.

The second prize went to Grenoble (France) and the third to Poznan (Poland) – both cities having exhibited remarkable progress in terms of accessibility to transport, education, accommodation, shopping, culture, sports, tourism and employment.
