Entlebuch wants to become even more inclusive


Schüpfheim LU/Lucerne/Zurich – The UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch will analyze its leisure activities in terms of accessibility. Over the next twelve months, she will be working with the Lucerne start-up MountOn and the SRF solidarity foundation Denk an mich.

The UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch is committed to more comprehensive accessibility in its six destinations. According to a press release, various experiences will therefore be tested over the next twelve months, a pragmatic reduction in barriers will be demonstrated and, finally, the offers will be communicated even better with regard to barrier-free needs.

The organization will be working together with the start-up MountOn. The Lucerne-based start-up will advise service providers on how they can make their offers even more inclusive in both winter and summer. “We are delighted to be working together to lay an important foundation for even more people to be able to enjoy the experiences on offer in the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch in the future,” said MountOn co-founder Kevin Meier.

Sandro Bucher, who is responsible for tourism and mobility in Entlebuch, also points out that not only people with mobility, visual and hearing impairments need accessibility, but also families. This is particularly the case when several generations with baby carriages and walkers spend their vacation together.

The pilot project, generously supported by the SRF solidarity foundation Denk an mich, will be presented to the service providers of the various destinations on May 14, the host day. According to Bucher, this is “a unique and great opportunity” to have your own offer analyzed “simply and inexpensively”. According to the announcement, invitations will be sent out shortly. ce/mm
