Accessible transport is a right and helps very important social inclusion, but for some of us it is not always possible to transport and travel where we want or when it is needed.
Our mobility action is going to take place in France in Paris, where we want to introduce new way of transport for disabled persons in wheelchair that have driving license. We want to show different and nicer lifestyle for disabled persons, when they can transport anywhere and anytime by themselfs without any help of others just with help of Elbee vehicle. It is designed specially for disabled drivers in wheelchair. Without any discomfort you can drive into the vehicle just on your wheelchair and in a minute you become an independent driver. This event will be launched in September. We want to show that also people with disabilities are part and can be part of road traffic and that is a reason why there should be more attention paid on this issue, either from point of view of enlightenment of majority of population and also from point of view of enlightenment of disabled persons in wheelchair themselfs, who don´t know about all possibilities of personal transport they can take advantage of. New options of independent transport can significantly influence quality of life, especially work life and higher quality of work inclusion. It is very important to flexibly react and to have possibility to be on time on meeting or at workplace. This fact can affect economic part of life of wheelchair person, social inclusion and employment as a whole.
We want to teach them about responsible use of car, which is related to sustainability, inform them about possibilities of sharing car and carpooling (seat for passenger), show them reasonable resource handling and about driver´s impact on the environment.
All our steps lead to improvement of recent trafic situation and head to sustainability. We want to be part of a progress wave and participate on behavioural change of majority and persons with special needs in terms of indepence and boosting ecological transport. We believe we can make progress towards creating more sustainable transport in Europe and in the world.
We will inform about all events during our mobility action on our blog on website.
