During a whole day they discussed the different options and proposed solutions.
The objective of this initiative was to raise peoples’ awareness regarding the problems that handicapped citizens face in the city on a daily basis. During a joint city tour participants could experience the practical challenges at first hand. A city quiz was used to identify possible pitfalls.
