A European report sets the scene for promoting universal design and setting an action plan in motion. It promotes a universal design (UD) approach as a strategy to ensure equal and democratic rights in society for all individuals. It covers participation in: political and public life; cultural life; information and communication; education; employment; the built environment; transport; community living; legal protection; research and development; and awareness raising.
Examples of good practice are also included. It links well with the eight domains of life outlined in the WHO Age Friendly Cities and Communities program.
The title of the report is Achieving full participation through Universal Design.
