About the app
Have you ever felt excluded? Children and adults, who find it difficult to see, learn, walk or hear often feel excluded. Many barriers can prevent them from participating in the same way as others. Most of these barriers are imposed by society. A child in a wheelchair, for example, may want to go to school, too. But he or she may not be able to do so because the school has no ramp and the principal or teachers are not supportive. For everyone to be included, we need to change existing rules, attitudes and even buildings, walkways, street crossings and playgrounds.
The mobile application ”For a Childhood Without Barriers“ gives you the opportunity as a user of iPhone or Android to get involved in mapping the obstacles faced by children and adults with disabilities. You can also map the positive examples where obstacles have been removed or the institution is inclusive and accessible.
The mobile application is part of the UNICEF supported campaign “For a Childhood Without Barriers” with finacial assistance from the European Union.
