APPI 2020 Virtual Conference
Announcing Keynote Speaker Darby Lee Young
Principal Accessibility Strategist, Level Playing Field Inc.
'Leadership in Accessibility and Designing for the Future'
Accessibility is becoming increasingly important in the built environment. With rapidly evolving accessibility policy it is key that city builders understand the importance of accessibility. Without having a disability, it is impossible to fully understand living with a disability. How can you design, plan or build something accessible when you do not have to experience inaccessibility daily? The practice of empathetic design is key to understanding disability and the built environment for city builders that do not have experience living with disabilities. The goal of this presentation is to empower planners, designers and developers to design, build and plan empathetically.
