Eliminating physical barriers

This is an educational guideline on elimination of physical barriers. It helps to adopt nature experience offers to different user groups with mobility restrictions for a self-determined (unguided) nature experience.

The brochure is meant to assist the implementation of the adjustments driven from the decision matrix (Self-determined nature experience). It addresses adaptations and descriptions of nature trails and provides pedagogical guidance to implement/safeguard safe and barrier-free motion. Along the decision criteria from the matrix, different aspects of adaptations can be advisable. For instance, for people in wheelchairs, these adaptations will include elimination of steps and for people with walking frames in addition to that to put up benches every 500m.
