Mobility in cities that leave no one behind

Mobility in cities that leave no one behind

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.
