Universal Design 2016 (UD2016) - Learning from the past, designing for the future

The 3rd International Conference on Universal Design will take place in the historic city of York (formerly the Viking capital Jorvik and even more formerly the Roman Eboracum). The conference will explore all aspects of universal design, design for all and inclusive design from both practical and theoretical viewpoints.  We will aim to understand what has gone before to invent a better, more inclusive future.

After the first two very successful Universal Design Conferences in Lund in 2014 and Oslo in 2012, we look forward to welcoming a diverse and creative group of practitioners and researchers to York for discussions, demonstrations, drinking and debating.

Please help us spread the word about UD2016 to any colleagues who may be interested in exploring the past and future of universal design.  We are looking forward to welcoming you to York in August 2016!


Sun 21 Aug 2016 9:00 AM - Wed 24 Aug 2016 5:00 PM


The conference will take place at the Ron Cooke Hub on the Heslington East campus of the University of York.
