Some cities in the European Union
won a prize for accessibility.

A city has accessibility when all people
can live in it, move around
and use everything without problems.

The prize is called Access City Award.

The city of Jönköping in Sweden won the first prize because it made the city and businesses more accessible and people with disabilities helped.

The city of Bremerhaven in Germany
won the second prize.

The city of Gdynia in Poland
won the third prize.

The city of Poznań in Poland was recognised because it helped autistic people access services during the Coronavirus.
