For a World without barriers

The last two days of February 2014 were very exciting for us because our representative participated at international “Zero project” conference in Vienna, Austria. Aim of the conference was to raise awareness about innovative solutions from around the world that advance accessibility for persons with disabilities. The conference seeks to strengthen the commitment of all stakeholders to promote, protect and advance the rights of persons with disabilities, and to improve their daily lives.

At the third Zero Project Conference on “Accessibility: Innovative Policies and Innovative Practices for Persons with Disabilities” parliamentarians, representatives of NGOs and foundations, academics, social entrepreneurs, disability rights activists and the business world discussed Innovative Policies and Innovative Practices and explored ways to promote and spread them to other countries.
