EU cities are invited to take part in the Access City Award 2021, the EU Prize for cities accessible to persons with disabilities and elderly people.

European cities over 50 000 inhabitants have the opportunity to present their designed actions and strategies to become barrier-free and better places for everyone to live and work.
The selection process will have two stages:

  • national juries will evaluate the applications at a national level;
  • an EU jury will then assess the shortlisted applications
