Special Issue Launch: 'Universally Accessible Public Spaces for All'

This press conference will officially launch a special issue of the Journal of Public Space with a focus on universally accessible public spaces.

At WUF10, the World Blind Union and City Space Architecture committed to develop, publish, and launch such an issue at WUF11. This was captured in the Abu Dhabi Declared Actions. The aim of the special issue is to support sharing of learnings, evidence-based practices, innovative solutions, and measures taken by cities and practitioners to ensure inclusive and accessible public spaces for all and support implementation of the New Urban Agenda in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and other human rights instruments and core development and humanitarian frameworks.
