About the event
This seminar will provide an overview of the current context, challenges and opportunities surrounding persons with disabilities and inclusion in the built environment. Whilst referencing the South African minimum standards, this event aims to introduce attendees to universal design thinking through continuous learning and engagement with like-minded people.
We will cover historical and theoretical content including general disability awareness and will explore these concepts with shared experiences from persons with disabilities. We cover inclusive communication skills which give a snapshot perspective on how to ensure the use of effective, progressive, and inclusive techniques when communicating.
The seven principles of universal design will be unpacked through the showcasing of drawings, photos, and videos that demonstrate the practical application of these principles. Having understood what universal design entails, we then unpack the South African legislated framework that guides the implementation of inclusive goals.
This seminar is focused on the built environment stakeholder because the professional team holds the key to the implementation of any inclusive strategy.
The practical segment on day 2 has been designed to create an immersive experience as participants manoeuvre through the facility – with a simulated impairment. Participants will use the knowledge gained to assess different parts of the seminar venue in terms of barriers, restrictions, and design choices.
Throughout the seminar, there will be a series of interesting facts, myth-busters, and enlightening information that seeks to demystify disabilities.
