The challenge that is addressed is poor accessibility to nature for people with disabilities and their families, where they can experience experiences that encourage the appreciation, care and regeneration of the environment and leisure. Their Practice arises from the participatory assessment of accessibility of natural parks where the actors are people with disabilities, their families, migrants, pregnant women, elderly people. Based on the results, an improvement plan is designed that includes the design and manufacture of unicycles for inclusive hiking to access spaces with poor accessibility, volunteers collaborate and become allies of inclusion, routes are designed, material with universal design is developed for environmental education and self-care. It incorporates training for future professionals, competitions of inclusive tourism proposals for students from different careers to promote a systemic view and collaborative work and the design of three courses for the National Tourism Service in accessible tourism aimed at training officials and tour operators, including accessibility self-assessment tools, development of an improvement plan, and the development of a plan of action to improve accessibility.
