Welcome! In our modern city lifestyle we take it for granted that we can choose among various modes of transport, that we can use public spaces in reasonable comfort and safety. In an ideal, universally designed, city this would actually be the case for all of us.

In this short course we talk about accessibility in the context of universal design, we explore the benefits of universally designed environments, and we look at design tools and methods that deliver urban mobility for everyone. You will understand:

  • What universal design is and how a holistic approach can help understand and solve complex situations
  • The benefits of universal mobility for equal access
  • What it means to have reduced sensory, physical or cognitive functions
  • What design features are important to provide better accessibility

What Urban Professionals Have to Say

This is very useful in understanding the world from someone else's point of view. It also highlights not to create a technology gap in accessibility solutions as technology is not always available to everyone. This is a brilliant crash course and a great way to begin understanding accessibility.
