JUSTICE final event: What about justice in public transit?

24 April - 8:30 am - 25 April - 6:00 pm

The JUSTICE project, which examined accesibility inequalities to improve city strategies, is sharing the project outcomes in a final event on 24th April, in Strasbourg. 

Funded as part of the ENUAC project call, the project addressed the challenge of developing effective policy options for urban accessibility and connectivity, involving stakeholders in the process. Specifically, the project JUSTICE relied on the idea that intra-urban accessibility is genuinely not the same for everyone. Spatiotemporal, but also social, physical, and socio-cognitive inequalities arguably reinforce the intrinsically uneven nature of accessibility. The project focused on specific groups suffering from accessibility gaps: disabled, blind and visually impaired, elderly and socially underprivileged people.

The project has used different methods to identify and address these inequalities in an inclusive city strategy in Konya (Turkey), Brussels (Belgium) and Strasbourg (France), the three urban case studies.

In its final event, the JUSTICE project will bring together local politicians, scientists and members of other Enuac projects team to discuss the project results.
