Why care about accessibility?
- 15% of the world are people with disabilities. That’s 1 billion people!
- As we age, we all become disabled in one way or another.
- Thanks to the Curb-Cut Effect, making the world more accessible for people with disabilities benefits all of society.
- It’s a growing market, thanks to both current and future legislation in the EU and all around the world.
- It’s the right thing to do, because disabled people are people, and all people have the same value as humans.
