Accessibility is about giving people with disabilities access to society on the same terms as everyone else.
It’s also about those with a disability being able to take part in contributing accessibility information, influencing it and communicating it with others in the community, the municipality’s politicians and officials.
Log This Place gives you the power to influence how accessible a specific place is to your needs. As a user, we believe that you should have the opportunity to be directly involved in the production of information linked to accessible places.

The city that is involved in this project
The City of Malmö wants to strengthen inclusion and accessibility for public spaces in the city for people with disabilities. In this project, Handiscover together with the City of Malmö enables people with disabilities to update and develop the existing accessibility information that’s published in the city’s Accessibility Guide. Each person with a disability should be able to contribute with accessibility information about places in real-time through Log This Place on their mobile.
User-driven accessibility information about public spaces for people with disabilities
Accessibility affects us
The public space affects us all in our daily lives as we move around the city. Public buildings and facilities contain services people need in the form of health care, culture, leisure, recreation etc. The design of the public space often affects us much more than we think. For people with disabilities, design is even more important. Design in regards to accessibility should cater to the various disabilities that exist in humans.
We strengthen and develop accessibility information
Our project is based on this and aims to strengthen and develop public information about accessibility in the urban space for people with disabilities by including them in the information development, i.e. user-driven development that increases trust between residents with disabilities and the public sector.
A need that is only increasing
There is an increasing proportion of people with disabilities in Sweden and in the EU. The population is getting older and chronic diseases are increasing. In Europe, there are around 135 million Europeans with a disability (source). At the same time, digital technology offers great opportunities to increase accessibility to the urban space for people with disabilities.
