Mountain regions and the elderly and disabled

Services for the elderly and the accessibility of accommodation by the disabled are the two key issues of a seminar at Feltre in Italy on July 2. The seminar is being held as part of the Interreg IIIA Programme Montagna Accessibile (Mountains Within Reach) of the Belluno Province and the Federal Province of Tyrol/A.
It is to present the results of a study on the accessibility of tourist accommodation by the disabled in the Belluno province. The data itself is available on the www.bellunosociale.it (it) web site. There is also a freephone number with information for the disabled, the elderly and people with impaired mobility on such matters as transport, accessibility of public authorities, and tourist infrastructure, etc.
The seminar also features a study comparing the organisation of social services for the elderly in Tyrol and the Belluno Province. Finally a report is to be presented on promoting sporting activities for disabled and non-disabled people in mountain regions.
