About us

Our goals

At Sitios, we want to live in an inclusive and non-discriminatory society. Because joy, vitality and innovation always arise when people with different experiences come together.

People with disabilities bring an important perspective. And this is relevant: Every fifth person in Switzerland is partially or temporarily disabled. Especially for people with disabilities, we want to create a world that is made for them.

Sitios is removing barriers with a digital platform on which information about the accessibility of buildings and mobility services is exchanged. Accessibility information is essential for people with disabilities when planning their trips and enables them to participate in social life. With the Disability Equality Act and the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, our goal is actually law. Still, there is still a lot to do — come on this journey with us!

“My needs aren't the same every day”

The Barrier-Free Switzerland Friends Association - which is now part of Sitios - launched the OK:GO initiative in 2019. This supports the tourism industry when it comes to “accessibility”. Julian Heeb, who himself is wheelchair dependent, developed the platform. He talks about the consequences of the pandemic and the availability of data.
