Welcome to the Inclusive Public Space project

The IPS project is investigating the problems caused by unequal access to city streets around the world and the ways law and governments respond to them. This issue is particularly important to disabled people, older people, children, parents and carers. Our aim is to raise public awareness and build solidarity, strengthen the rights of pedestrians, and make cities more inclusive. If you’d like to learn more, please see About the Project or check out our Project Films.
