Make Way Day 2021
This year with the ongoing COVID pandemic, the Make Way Day campaign was adapted.
The Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI) have designed an online tool specifically for the campaign. Participants will be invited to undertake a survey of their 5k journey with this online easy-to-use tool. The tool is mobile-friendly and is used to draw attention to anything that represents an access problem.
This quick and easy exercise is mainly picture-based, and people can use it as often as they like on the day. There will be a link to the tool on all DFI social media platforms and website on Friday 24th of September.
You don't have to have a disability to use the tool, as the point of Make Way Day is to bring attention to the barriers on the footpath that cause disabled people so many problems. Please visit Make Way Day to keep up to date.
The results on the online tool can then be posted on social media page by everyone with the Hashtag #makewayday21 to raise the issues in the public domain.
The Disability Federation of Ireland’s aim is to have all the 5ks or neighbourhoods join up to give us one comprehensive map of Ireland. We will coordinate all the results and share them with the right people and work together to help solve the problems.
