New prize to celebrate the year
2018 is also the occasion for the Access City Award (ACA) to celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Therefore this year, in December, two cities that have done the most to guarantee accessibility to their cultural heritage will be rewarded, in addition to the traditional ACA three prizes.
This new prize for accessibility to cultural heritage has two categories: cities with under 50,000 inhabitants, and cities with larger population.
Listen to Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Mobility, who explains the importance of ensuring accessibility for all Europeans and the small changes cities can make to improve accessibility and fight the social exclusion of people with reduced mobility.
