Challenge Expiration Date: September 15, 2020
Collaboration with Enel
Enel is looking for solutions that can contribute to allow people living with disability free mobility when entering and moving around public or private buildings. There is also an interest to look for solutions that can facilitate orienteering inside the buildings for any kind of disability.
How can we make access and move around public or private buildings an experience that everyone can live independently, simply, efficiently, effectively and safely?
The aim is to empower people living with disabilities unlocking the business, social and economic value of solutions for them.
This challenge provides contribution to the following sustainable development goals (SDGs) to transform our world:

Around 1.3 billion people in the world are affected by a disability to some degree (15% of the global population, or 1 in 7 people), with a disposable annual income of $8 trillion a year. Notwithstanding these data and the fact that combined with friends and family, disability touches 53%* of consumers, their value is routinely not valorized by business.
Looking ahead, the global trends in ageing populations and the higher risk of disability in older people are likely to lead to further increases in the population affected by disability.
Around the world, persons with disabilities face a number of obstacles starting with physical and technological barriers that, preventing people from actively participating in society, may become also cultural and attitudinal hurdles. On the other hand, Enel think that granting autonomy and accessibility is a precondition to equal participation and leading role in society. This will help in turn:
