Accessible Placemaking: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Universal Design

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How can you bring accessibility and visibility to the next level in your work? About 1 in 4 people in the U.S have some sort of disability. Globally, over one billion people have a disability, which is 15% of our population. As more people move to urban spaces, and as we are rebuilding communities, it is our responsibility to make spaces welcoming, inclusive, sustainable and accessible for everyone at all stages in life. If we continue to ignore the needs people with disabilities have and do the bare minimum for code regulations, we continue the cycle of discrimination and social isolation. Join as panelists from landscape architecture, transportation, and design are doing in their field to create inclusive spaces for people with disabilities. This will be an interactive conversation between the panelist and attendees.
