Zero Barriers is the goal! In reality, there are loads of them still out there. Let’s find and map them during the time of the ZeroCon2022!
"Zero barriers!" - Wheelmap.org
Action time with Wheelmap! Talking about barriers is one thing – detecting them in your close neighbourhood is the potential for real change! Wheelmap.org is the online map for wheelchair accessible places based on crowdsourcing. It is available in 32 languages and works worldwide. Within 11 years the community has collected more than 2 million places. But there are still a lot of places with unknown wheelchair accessibility status. This is what we can change in the three days of the Zero Conference 2022, from Febr 23 till Febr 25. Ready, set, map!
