Access City Award 2022

Applications for the 12th edition of the Access City Award closed on 8 September. The winning cities will be announced at an online ceremony on 3 December.

Forty EU cities with over 50 000 inhabitants presented their actions and strategies to become barrier-free and better cities for everyone to live and work.

The selection process is split into two stages:

  1. national juries will evaluate the applications at a national level
  2. an EU jury will then assess the shortlisted applications

Celebrating the 12th Access City Award

This edition of the Access City Award will capitalize on the European Year of Rail to reward a city that has made outstanding efforts to make their train stations accessible for persons with disabilities, by awarding them a special mention. 

Since the 2020 edition of the Access City Award, a financial prize has been awarded to the first, second and third place winners of the competition (please note that special mentions are not entitled to a financial prize)
