A « destination for all » is an attractive territory (municipality, region tourist or cultural sites) where everybody can participate to all activities, without obstacles. Accordingly, a destination for all is served by accessible transportation services.
This concept complies with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the recommendations of the World Tourism Organization promoting accessible tourism for all.
Destinations for All aims to promote accessible tourism around the world. The summits bring together organizations, associations, institutions, and accessible tourism service providers, on one hand, and tourist, cultural, heritage and institutional actors and operators in the field on the other. They provide a unique and exceptional opportunity for these people to meet, exchange and build global partnerships.
The summits are based on the belief that accessibility is a right that must be claimed, and that should be the duty of destinations, institutions and any tourist services to do everything in their power to achieve optimal accessibility and to offer all visitors a barrier-free experience.
Destinations for All positions itself today as a major global change player. It took place for the first time in 2014 in Montreal, then in 2018 in Brussels, on the initiative of Kéroul and CAWaB.
