(15 June 2021) – The 12th Access City Award competition is now open for applications. EU cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants can apply until 8 September 2021.
The award rewards cities that have made particular efforts to be accessible and inclusive for persons with disabilities.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive prizes of €150,000, €120,000 and €80,000 respectively.
Because 2021 is the European Year of Rail, the Commission will give a special mention to a city that has made outstanding efforts to make its train stations accessible for all.
Last year’s winner of the Access City Award was Jönköping in Sweden.
