Urban Lab - Accessibility and Inclusion, Urban Thinkers Campus 2017, Town Hall N1, Council Chamber
The Urban Lab - Accessibility and Inclusion - with the focal point on "communication for involvement and cohesion in urban society" is a forum for highlighting aspects of the challenges posed by digitisation that people are faced with today. Does a world of unlimited communication remove all barriers and leave no group behind? Besides spatial barriers there is a danger that the involvement of everyone in local democracy and everyday life will be prevented by negative mindsets about the diversity of people and increasing requirements of new education and communication formats.
How are these problems to be dealt with, particularly in view of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and its 17 global sustainability development goals? Which strategies are necessary to bring about a barrier-free city and an inclusive city?
