Persons with disabilities should have access, on an equal basis with others, to information and communications technologies and systems. Accessibility is a prerequisite for equality and the ability to act independently in society, in particular for persons with disabilities. Lack of accessibility can place people in vulnerable and marginalized positions.

By embracing innovation, universal design and user involvement, we can create public welfare services that are more accessible, efficient, and responsive to the needs of all citizens. At this side event, the Nordic countries share insight on strategic planning when developing the accessible digital world and on how they see the future.
