Subject: Accessibility in the context of building renovations
The new European Disability Strategy states that Member States should make accessibility part of all actions undertaken in relation to the Green Deal, such as the Renovation Wave and the New European Bauhaus.
- Will there be specific funding earmarked for the renovation of buildings to make them accessible?
- Will there be legislation to ensure that new buildings are designed to be accessible?
- The Strategy also provides that professionals must be provided training in the area of accessibility. How will this training be set up and delivered?
