Quality of life in cities depends on how public space can be used by citizens. In order to counteract social exclusion through lack of accessibility and its subsequent consequences for health and wellbeing, it is important to recognize accessibility as a basic prerequisite for participation in society, and as the primary objective of sustainable transport planning. In recent years, there has been significant research into the multifaceted nature of accessibility. In addition to classical accessibility perspectives attention has been paid to the individual components of accessibility. However, there is a still a huge research gap in understanding the perceptions of accessibility. With this session, we intend to approach a holistic understanding of perceived accessibility and its consequences for everyday mobility.
