During the COVID-19 pandemic, cities responded quickly to changes in travel demands, providing slow streets for walking and cycling, and other interventions that made people see the possibility in how we can transform our cities if we have the momentum. Now, cities are working to build more resilient and sustainable urban systems that can better accommodate disaster preparedness, expand access, and prepare for a low carbon future. It is within this context that we must take action on rebuilding cities and their mobility systems with universal access for all. 

Drawing from the Access and Persons with Disabilities in Urban Areas report, published in collaboration with World Enabled, the speakers from civil society will come together and discuss how inclusive participatory engagement leads to more accessible cities around the world. 

This event will feature live interpretations in Spanish.
