Theme

Universal Design and Sustainable Development

Sub Themes

  1. Innovation for All

    We frequently experience problems as we try to use goods and services around us. To get rid of such inconveniences, innovation is essential in every aspect.

  2. Regional and Urban Development

    Regional and urban development must consider the residents in the area. They should not be segregated as new infrastructure is introduced. UD has a crucial role to play for the purpose.

  3. Sustainable Inclusive City

    Sustainability is a global issue, and inclusivity as well. How can we make our cities sustainable and inclusive?

  4. User-friendly product design and service

    All products around us must be universally designed, and they must be integrated with inclusive service, so that no one is excluded.

  5. Rapid Global Ageing

    Population ageing is not a problem in developed countries. It is more urgent for emerging countries whose population ageing might come before they are affluent. How can we mitigate potential problems through universal design?
