Effect vol 5 Issue 1 (Spring 2011): Public-private partnership to open historical city centre to all


The accessibility of historical buildings and city spaces must be improved, not only for people
with disabilities, but for everyone. This is the focus of the joint European initiative, the
League of Historical Accessible Cities, under the aegis of the EFC. To date, nine foundations
and six cities from five countries are participating in the project. The Danish contribution is
backed by a partnership of four Danish foundations and a municipality who have joined forces
to open the centre of the historic city of Viborg, and to show how an active and accessible
cultural heritage can create growth and increase tourism in historic cities.
