AES was awarded a prize by the ZERO project for its innovative work with the blind in February in Vienna
The Zero Project, an initiative of the Essl Foundation, focuses on the rights of people with disabilities worldwide. It provides a platform for sharing the most innovative and effective solutions to problems of people with disabilities. The Zero Project builds on a growing network of over 4,000 organisations and disability experts with and without disabilities in over 160 countries. Through its conference, report and awards, the Zero Project disseminates and promotes reproducible and innovative solutions that overcome the problems of people with disabilities by raising public awareness and encouraging reform, acting as a catalyst for a world without barriers. …
During the course of the programme, the selected initiatives will receive training, mentoring, tailor-made support, networking and visibility in cooperation with local replication partners to further replicate their innovation and impact in other regions. The goal is to prepare these initiatives for replication, connect them with relevant replication partners, and further support replication through our alumni community.
