The aim of universalising design is to create a more inclusive world. The principles of Universal Design are being implemented internationally to bring about about changes in design thinking so that all people are considered regardless of age, capability or background.
Universal design is a design concept not a type of product. The principles of universal design can be applied to concrete things like products, buildings and open spaces, to intellectual activities such as designing learning programs, and to conceptual things such as policies and practices. Universal design is also part of conversations about sustainability, resilience, health and wellbeing.
