The European Commission has opened nominations for the second edition of the “Access City Award”, the European Award for Accessible Cities.
The European Commission has opened nominations for the second edition of the “Access City Award”, the European Award for Accessible Cities. The annual prize aims to showcase and reward cities which take exemplary steps to improve their accessibility for people with disabilities in fundamental aspects of city living. It will highlight the most successful initiatives allowing disabled people to participate fully in society and have equal access to their rights.

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 20 September to submit a nomination.

The new edition of the Access City Award is now open for applications. The deadline for submission is 20 September 2011. The winner will be announced at the Award Ceremony in Brussels on 1-2 December 2011. You can find all information on participation rules, contribution procedure and more on this website.
