Accessible Street in Sultanbeyli Project

Sultanbeyli, Istanbul

October - December 2022

The subject of the Accessible Street in Sultanbeyli Project, carried out in partnership with Kainak, Accessible Everything and Sultanbeyli Municipality, is to support participation methods in order to rethink accessibility standards in the pilot area determined by Sultanbeyli Municipality and to prepare a design proposal with aesthetic and sustainability principles at the forefront. Accessible Street Project in Sultanbeyli will be the beneficiary of the grant support program organized by the National Demcracy Institute (NDI) Turkey.

Project Content

The main purpose of the project is to provide an aesthetic and sustainable street design proposal above the accessibility standards in order to facilitate the use of physically disadvantaged citizens and indirectly other disadvantaged groups and to create safe streets by providing a participatory process management. The target audience of the project is the physically and mentally disadvantaged citizens who have problems in the urban area in Sultanbeyli, as well as other disadvantaged groups (women, children, elderly, etc.) who are indirect beneficiaries, and the project activities are planned to be completed in November.
