Webinar: Beyond Aging in Place: Opportunities and Innovative Solutions through Universal Design

A vast majority of the design community embraces Universal Design as a concept – especially those in health and wellness industries – but true universal design implementation is challenging. What does Universal Design look like in practice? How can we move beyond the treatment of universal design as a compartmentalized approach to design for aging and accessibility?

In this presentation, two key thought leaders in the universal design arena will share expertise and insight around true and tangible universal design: what it means, what it looks like, and how to achieve it. The presenters will continue the conversation around expanding the traditional view of universal design, using an evidence-based approach, and will share case studies in a variety of scales and environments.

This webinar is the second presentation in a three-part series on universal design. Part 1: “To Age is Human: Universal Design Research and Trends” and is available On Demand on the CHD website here. Part 3 will be presented in late 2017/early 2018 by a panel of Universal Design experts.
