#yellowtheworld

#YellowTheWorld is a campaign to raise awareness on accessibility and to promote the mobility of visually impaired and blind.

The hashtag can be explained with “Let´s paint the world with  yellow“. An easy way to make the spaces, the environments, the cities more visible to people with visual disabilities, facilitating their mobility. Yellow, when used in contrast with the black and gray of urban elements, allows better identification of steps and other obstacles.

The symbol of the campagnia is a yellow thumb, used to tag the places that have something positive in terms of accessibility.
The world map of this website collects some of the positive and even negative situations experienced in different locations around the world.
Over the years #YellowTheWorld has turned from a purely media campaign into concrete activities and actions that have made possible new experiences.

    The subways are quite hard to navigate. Sometimes with audio announcements, other times with no indicators of sort. Steps are hardly painted #yellow.
