Launch of Access City awards 2013
From EC Press release:
The European Commission has opened today the competition for the third “Access City Award”, the European Award for Accessible Cities. The annual prize recognises and celebrates cities that are dedicated to providing an accessible environment for all, and for persons with disabilities in particular. The Award is part of the EU's wider effort to create a barrier-free Europe: improved accessibility brings lasting economic and social benefits to cities, especially in the context of demographic ageing. Cities with at least 50,000 inhabitants have until 5 September 2012 (16.00 Brussels time) to submit their candidacy for the award.
