A must for design businesses tendering for public sector contracts and design organisations seeking to expand their customer base
Universal Design, also called inclusive design or Design for All, is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. The Universal Design for All process prioritises the needs of users that have the more diverse abilities and characteristics, by involving users, and by using knowledge about accessibility and usability in its organisational processes and procedures.
Hear from champions of Universal Design, ALONE Ireland and IDI Award Winners Dolmen Design, early adopters of new continuous improvement standard EN 17161.
Learn from Professor Liz Sanders, founder of Make Tools and author of Convivial Toolbox: Generative Research for the Front End of Design, who will present her Generative Design Method Cards – only available to attendees of this event!
