Tourism for all, accessibility of destinations, accommodation and Information within EU'S new tourism strategy
Tourism is the EU's third largest socioeconomic activity accounting for 10% of the GDP and 12% of total employment figures.

But travel, holidays, leisure and sports during the holidays for people with disabilities is unpredictable, difficult or sometimes even impossible. The issue was discussed during the public hearing organised in Brussels this week. Available material includes an edited package.
