Exciting 2022 Pedesting Updates
So much has happened in the world of Pedesting since our last blog post, that it is difficult to know where to begin. As was the case for countless businesses, COVID-19 threw a wrench in the works for Pedesting and our progress, at a critical time in our development. Whilst the whole world was affected by the pandemic, its onset had a disproportionate impact on people with disabilities according to Statistics Canada.
The Importance of Building For Everyone
As city-builders, incorporating accessibility into the built environment is one of our topmost priorities, and we know we’re not alone in our hope to see Calgary projects be built with all users in mind.
Pedesting Community Partnerships
Pedesting is more than an app: it is a community of people who see their respective city as a place for everyone to come together and contribute. The Pedesting community is unified by the belief that a society is best served when everyone is represented, when all citizens are accounted for and able to partake.
