Nov 01, 2019
  • Description

The Zero Project, officially launched in 2011, is the Essl Foundation's project that advocates, with a new and innovative approach, the rights of persons with disabilities internationally, and aims, ultimately, "for a world without barriers". For the past six years, the Zero Project has organised the annual Zero Project Conference in the UN Headquarters in Vienna, highlighting innovations that support people with disabilities. Since the first conference, the accessibility of the conference has been a key focus of the Zero Project, and every year the features and measures that support the participation of everyone who wishes to attend have been improved.This report, created jointly with their accessibility partner Escola de Gente and the wider Zero Project Network, presents what the Zero Project has learned on the journey towards an inclusive and accessible conference.
