Inclusion Europe earns recognition from Zero Project

A project run by Inclusion Europe has been included as one of 42 Innovative Practices 2015 by the Zero Project. The project, entitled ‘Accommodating Diversity for Active Participation in European Elections (ADAP)’, was selected from a list of 231 nominations from 58 different countries.

ADAP was organised with Inclusion Europe member organisations Nous Aussi, Enable Scotland and Inclusion Czech Republic. Having carried out research on accessibility for people with disabilities to European Elections in a number of different countries, Inclusion Europe published a national guide entitled ‘Voting For All’, which provided recommendations to national governments on solutions to accessibility issues for people with disabilities at elections.

The Zero Project is an initiative run by the Essl Foundation in conjunction with the European Foundation Centre, which seeks to work for a « world without barriers » using innovative practices and policies to do so.

As part of the Zero Project, Inclusion Europe will also promote and develop its project as well as becoming part of a network of project owners and decision makers in the field of political participation and independent living for people with disabilities.
