Suara signs the COCEMFE Barcelona Declaration calling for universal access

2 June, 2017

Suara Cooperative has signed the Declaration of the Federation COCEMFE Barcelona Francesc Layret on: "The universal accessibility, a contribution to the common good." I appeals to implement existing legislation and to promote a cultural change based on the paradigm of universal design, which directs their actions and product development environments easily accessible to the greatest number of people possible, without the need to adapt or redesign them in a special way.

The manifesto calls for the following:

  • The application of measures of accessibility and universal design in all goods, environments, products and services.
  • To improve sensitivity and social awareness through appropriate actions in terms of universal accessibility.
  • Promoting non-discrimination of persons with disabilities, ensuring the principle of equal opportunities.
  • Getting on 4 December 2017 that all municipalities of Catalonia meet the requirements of universal accessibility with reasonable adjustments when that’s not possible.
