Smart Cities for All
- Washington, DC
In June of 2016, the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) and World Enabled began a partnership and launched the globalSmart Cities for All (SC4A) initiative to understand how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are being made available to persons with disabilities and older persons in Smart Cities. Our Mission is to eliminate the digital divide for persons with disabilities and older persons in Smart Cities programs worldwide.
In its first year, the SC4A initiative engaged in a global study on digital inclusion and ICT accessibility and confirmed that most Smart Cities worldwide are notaccessible today and the result is a growing digital dividefor persons with disabilities and older persons.In May 2017, the SC4A initiative releasedan initial set of tools to help Smart Cities worldwide include a focus on ICT accessibility and the digital inclusion of persons with disabilities and older persons. This toolkit supports a range of organizations and roles related to Smart Cities, including government managers, policy makers, IT professionals, disability advocates, procurement officials, technology suppliers, and developers who design Smart City apps and solutions.
