Become a sustainable travel detective
Travelucation is a program that encourages travelers to adopt sustainable travel habits from an early age. The booklet and simulation package offer practical, hands-on materials suitable for families, schools, and organizations. These booklets are freely distributed by accommodations, tourist information centers, and town halls, inviting individuals to participate in an enjoyable scavenger hunt. Discover more about how this initiative raises awareness and improves understanding of sustainable travel, a topic frequently neglected in school curriculums.
Help to improve the visibility of accessible places and contribute to Social Sustainability!
Anyone can find and add public places to the map and rate them according to a simple traffic light system. The map was created in 2010 to help people who use wheelchairs or wheeled walkers plan their days more easily. Parents pushing a baby carriage can also benefit from Wheelmap.org information. There are almost 600,000 cafés, libraries, swimming pools, and many other public places on the map. About 300 new places are added on a daily basis. Do you want to be the one adding the next?
Wheelmap is available on the website and as an app for iPhone and Android, making it easy to use the map on the road.
