Episode 88 Resources: A Day for All: International Day of Persons with Disabilities


Featured Organization

  • Inclusive Public Space Project (IPS)
    The IPS Project is investigating the problems caused by unequal access to city streets around the world and the ways law and governments respond to them. This issue is particularly important to people with disabilities, older people, children, parents, and caregivers. Our aim is to raise public awareness and build solidarity, strengthen the rights of pedestrians, and make cities more inclusive.
