Section F: Organization of Accessible Events

Suggestions on how to organize accessible events


UNICEF, together with its partner organizations, is often involved in organizing conferences, seminars, meetings or workshops and is therefore committed to ensuring that all participants and stakeholders, with and without disabilities, can actively participate in the event.

Several basic principles can be followed to select venues with the appropriate accessibility features. Requirements include, at a minimum, an accessible entrance and reception area, corridors, a main meeting room and bathrooms.

SECTION F of this toolkit describes key considerations for creating accessible and inclusive events.

  • Part 1 provides overall accessibility guidance according to the type and scale of the event, by phase (before, during and after the event).
  • Part 2 details specific actions that must be performed to ensure the accessibility of an event.
