Where should people go who are impatient for more thoughtfully designed homes, schools, communities, products and services? Where they do more than talk about design equity and innovation-driven action that makes life and learning better for everyone? No more preaching to the choir. It's time to broaden the conversation. Engage new people, explore new ideas at the Universal Design Today: Live & Learn Conference
OUR GOAL IS TO TRANSFER CRITICALLY USEFUL INFORMATION TO PEOPLE WHO NEED IT THE MOST Conference organizers are committed to liberating the practice of Universal Design - distinct from ADA compliance - extending beyond built environment concerns, and unleashing them into the wilds of many other design-driven disciplines. Our goal is to equip a wide range of people to incorporate universal design and innovation-driven strategies into all aspects of housing, education, community planning, technical and non-technical product/program development, to improve how we "live and learn." Conference organizers are reaching out to an unprecedented mix of people with wide ranging design, building, education, planning, user experience (UX), and economic/community development and expertise to create a live-action design conference that makes UD and innovation-economy development habit forming, contagious and everyday household terms.
