The project aims to help spread a culture of environmental accessibility.
The idea of an accessible environment – a world in which no one, regardless of their physical or cognitive condition, encounter any more architectural or technological or social barriers that affect their mobility, limit their relationships, and prevent their full realization as persons and as citizens – can no longer be confined to utopia. Today, at the dawn of the third millennium, this dream must become a reality: this is a prerequisite for the realization of an inclusive society.

Today, fortunately, this awareness is growing. There is a great deal of ongoing initiatives all over the planet, thanks to the commitment of associations of people with disabilities, civil society organizations, national and international bodies, groups from the world of science, law, culture, sport, communication, politics. However, there is still a long way to go. There is still a lot to do. The contribution we wish to bring about is inspired by the culture of unity, which is the founding dimension of the Focolare Movement. We will draw on the many concrete experiences of life and social commitment carried out in this field by people who personally live situations of disability, or people who are in contact with disability at varied levels: witnessing how lived experience of the limits is able to enlighten the thought and inspire action to make communities evolve in a truly inclusive way.
