Barrier-free Tourism

What is behind the term in recent years was the term accessibility, especially in the context of anti-discrimination campaigns to the keyword. Since then the accessibility finds its way into more and more areas of everyday life. The hotel Portal hotelreservierung.de explains what this expression is and why it is becoming increasingly important in tourism. In the Disability Equality Act (BGG), the word accessibility is used as a general term for the equality of disabled people in everyday life. Since accessibility is a synonym for Justice and equality.

“Why the expression but does not, as often assumed, with the word disabled” can be equated, explains the hotel lexicon of hotelreservierung.de. The original meaning of accessibility is that people should be independent of their physical condition able to be able to independently manage and built facilities enter all demands of everyday life. This applies not only to disabled people. Pregnant women, wounded, Seniors or people with small children are facing in everyday life often barriers. Accessibility should ensure public facilities and buildings, but also in the private household, allowing all freely and independently to move. In addition, a claim on modern facilities and services arises from accessibility. To ensure this claim plans, interior design and architecture of plants and hotels, as well as animation, leisure and drinks and menus adjusted in the tourism needs of affected people.

Hidden Keep Objectives Of The Parties Not The Voters

“” The Federal Assembly pleasure, freedom and self-determination will make a contribution to a transparent and active democracy the Federal Assembly for enjoyment, freedom and self-determination “is a central, nationwide platform of associations and initiatives, which is against the increasing restriction of personal freedom by State paternalism” and bans to defend. Smoking bans have resulted in guests, hosts, the Executive and legislature in recent months in Germany emotional discussions between citizens. The new rules required by the Federal Constitutional Court in 2008 are already in place in several provinces, others must follow suit this year. Large parts (of the smoking and catering jobs-creating) voters are confused, quality of life and jobs are threatened. And last but not least we are experiencing now in Saarland, how quickly enjoy political party positions on the altar could be sacrificed to the power. The issues of smoking and alcohol prevention find no place in the campaign. Almost any positions to be found also in the election programmes of parties. Many voters are now wondering which positions and intentions or their parliamentary candidates during the next legislature with regard to these two issues to put their party remember.

On the occasion of the Saxon Landtag election, one of the members of our Federal Assembly GFS conducted a survey among the candidates and the parties (cf.). . The results show that there is a wide spectrum of views between the official positions of the parties as well as the personal views of the candidates on the issue of benefit restrictions. It is assumed that the Federal parties follow in turn other positions and objectives. Unless one, because the legislative options in the Federal Government are different than at the country level, or unless that at the federal level, traditional, typical influences exhibit less weight. The voter has a right to be informed about the objectives of the parties.

For this purpose, which has Federal Assembly for enjoyment, freedom and self-determination at their meeting in August 2009, decided to question which came to parties and candidates to the elections and to open positions interested voters, as also the still undecided (non) voters in the short term before the election. She wants to make a modest contribution to a transparent and active democracy thus. The results will be provided on September 17, 2009, ten days before the election, on the various sites of our associations/initiatives, a further press release, as well as a nationwide distributed info-flyer.
