Details 

Universal design is a world-wide movement creating environments, products, services and technology that can be used by as many people as possible without adaptation.

The concept of universal design is increasingly evident in Australian policy and planning documents at all levels of government. However, there is a paucity of information about the concept and where to go for information. The Universal Design Forum will focus on the built environment, which includes housing, public buildings, public spaces and parks

Topics will include, issues related to universal design in planning, the public domain, housing, tourist & recreation venues, and outdoor areas. Our aim is to make the universal design forum in Adelaide a creative and diverse meeting place for both speakers and participants. We want to encourage conversations about how to create more inclusive environments. This forum will provide a valuable exchange of ideas, research and solutions as well as establishing connections and networks for future innovation in universal design in Australia.

In this forum, experts in the built environment come together to share and expand their knowledge of universal design, and how we can utilise it to make homes and environments more useable, accessible, safer and convenient for everyone.
