Globe4all Academy

Globe4all Academy is a project dedicated to the development of accessible tourism for people with disabilities. Accessibility is very important for 1 billion people in the world living with disability. Plus, according to the UNWTO, by 2050 there will be 2 billion people over 60. According to Lonely Planet, 50% of people with special needs avoid visiting new places if there is no information about their accessibility. Globe4all helps tourists with disabilities to find more about accessibility of our planet, plan their trips, book adapted tours, inspiring them to travel. Another problem is that disabled people face difficulties with self-realization, getting a profession or a job, especially in small cities. Globe4all provide them an opportunity to learn and work as guides and accessibility experts in their cities, to create accessible travel products through inclusive digital tools.
