The Schindler Global Award

Successful competition since 2003

The Schindler Global Award roots go back to 2003. The Schindler Group established the Schindler Award in 2003, the European Year of Disabled People, to examine questions about universal mobility and access in the European context. The competition became very well known and in 2014 /2015 was opened to students from all over the world.Now, in response to the pressing need for mobility solutions in a rapidly globalizing and urbanizing world, the Global Schindler Award expands the scale and scope of the Schindler Award. The questions of the Global Schindler Award now go beyond any single political or geographic border. The issue of equal access now includes social, political, environmental and economic systems to make livable urban environments for everyone.
