  • The World Health Organization says that 15% of the world’s population lives with an impairment or disability.
  • As the world’s population increases more people will live in cities. This means more people with disabilities will be living in cities.
  • As cities grow in size, we need to think about how they are built and who they are for.
  • People with disabilities are young, old, women, men, and of every race and ethnicity.
  • Inclusive cities think about people’s diversity and break down barriers.
