#MakeWayDay21 brings the disability & wider community together to consider the needs of people with disabilities in the public spaces. Parked cars, Signs & Bins left on paths & in the way, can be difficult obstacles for those with mobility issues.#MakeWayDay #disabilityinclusion pic.twitter.com/Db99Oqxfk7— CRC (@centralremedial) September 24, 2021

Participants can join the Zoom Meeting at this time to test the connection on their devices. Stephen will welcome all Erasmus+ participants to this new Erasmus+ Activity.
We are very excited to have Frank Kelly joining us as our first guest speaker for today. Frank will be talking about equal access to transport and why it is important.
We are delighted to have Duncan Smith joining us today. Duncan is currently a sitting Labour TD for Dublin Fingal County Council since 2014.
For this year's Make Way Day 2021 campaign, the DFI have created a wonderful digital tool which allows users to tag obstacles along a journey, upload pictures and then give an accessibility rating for that journey. It is a brilliant and easy tool to use which also allows users to share their findings on social media.
Kevin Dempsey from DFI will be joining us and will show us how to use this tool. Kevin is Head of Fundraising and Development with DFI.
For the afternoon community activity, Erasmus+ participants are encouraged to go out on journeys and use the DFI digital tool to capture and rate the accessibility of these journeys.
For Erasmus+ participants who are remaining onsite, Mary and Megan will be facilitating activities based on the Make Way Day Campaign.

Our main problem on #MakeWayDay21 is footpaths that are not dished! Here’s our local pedestrian entrance to the @phoenixparkopw it has no dish that allows us to cross the road. There is no excuse on a recently renovated footpath! C’mon @opwireland @DubCityCouncil @DisabilityFed pic.twitter.com/TY5uPxd1P8— susan dennehy (@susdennehy) September 24, 2021
Parking on footpaths and cycle lanes is unsafe, illegal and puts vulnerable road users at risk.— RSA Ireland (@RSAIreland) September 20, 2021
