The AccessNow app is powered by crowdsourcing – by people like you – who contribute by sharing observations and experiences about places in our neighbourhoods and our cities.
As we review the accessibility status of locations, we are building a movement that focuses on celebrating a world that is entirely accessible. We are passionate about changing the conversation about accessibility. Whether you have a disability or not, accessibility benefits us all.
We invite you to join in this movement: a worldwide community, passionate about change. Together we are empowering each other to achieve access now.
What Is A MapMission
A MapMission is an event that puts the power of action into your hands. Think of it like an accessibility scavenger hunt. It brings together members of your community to rate places in real-time on the AccessNow app.
Take time to learn and help create awareness about the importance of accessibility. MapMissions help highlight real barriers in the community while inviting people to gain tangible hands on experience.
With this action packed accessibility “scavenger hunt” you’ll learn by doing. Contribute to our crowdsourcing community by rating new places and join the movement of like-minded individuals.
Every MapMission helps us get that much closer to sharing accessibility information worldwide. Your efforts result in immediate impact that benefits the entire community. You’ll learn, you’ll see, together we will conquer.
