The mission of the Zero Project is: For a world without barriers. The goal of the Zero Project is to support decision makers and opinion leaders in their efforts to implement the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD).

The Zero Project team has done extensive research worldwide on outstanding projects and policies that cover all areas of accessibility, including built environment, transport, information and communication technology as well as products and services.

The expert network that contributed its expertise and that has actively nominated and evaluated projects and policies, includes more than 500 persons worldwide from 120 countries. More than 30 representatives of those Innovative Practices and Innovative Policies that have been selected, will be presenting their work at the Zero Project Conference 2014.
