WE ARE GLADIATORS
We are a Community of purposeful fighters, we are guardians of inclusion and we strive to make this world truly accessible. We fight in the Arena of Life against difficulties we did not choose: we did not choose how to come to life, we did not choose our planet's setup or its urbanistics, but we can choose to make it right.
Too many things don't work fine for us, that's why we're here to drive Change.
Since the dawn of time, cities were planned in the image and likeness of able-bodied people, it took couple of millennia for humankind to understand the importance of freedom and autonomy embracing us all. Today, we still tend to create cities in a myopic way and adapt to accessible principles after. We're here to shake the status quo and bring a new culture, where bottom-up inclusive universal deisign starts from people with difficulties to then include all of us in a wise way...
Simply because «what is easier for a person with disabilities, is easier for all».
Today we often talk about Smart Cities, but no city will ever be «smart» if it's not going to be inclusive.
We realise change is needed, but also that no change happens with no action.
We are here to act, we will make our way through and contribute in paving the way for the next generations.
We are Gladiators!
