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:
- national juries will evaluate the applications at a national level
- 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)
