Ministers and representatives of several institutions and local authorities in Podgorica learned about the obstacles for people with disabilities through a discussion.
Milenko Vojicic from UMHCG invited representatives of the institutions in what was hitherto one of the few cafes that are accessible to him as a wheelchair user, to share opinions in a conversation about what has been done so far in allowing the OSI to move without barriers.
When they went for a walk, they encountered one of the problems that people with disabilities encounter in the city. Namely, one driver near "Sava osiguranje" parked the car improperly and closed the ramp, so Vojicic and the institution's representatives had to go back and continue the walk in another direction.
The Youth Association for the Handicap of Montenegro organized this event by marking the European Day of Independent Life (May 5th), Europe Day (May 9th) and World Awareness Day on accessibility (May 16th).
The event is organized within the project “EU4ME” funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP.
