Training Tools for Accessible Towns (TTAT)
CAE’s first European Commission supported project, Training Tools for Accessible Towns was a collaboration with partner organisations from France, Italy, Romania and Greece.The project developed training tools for planners, access consultants, architects and construction professionals. The resulting training resources focus on access to the public realm and cover legislation, access standards and best practice examples across Europe and internationally.
SMALA our supporting Swiss partner organisation, have contributed a short film to support the project and features interviews with various user groups and an excellent disability awareness campaign. We recommend the interviews which start from 04:15min into the film.
