Whatever you call it – universal design, inclusive design, design-for-all, lifespan design – the worldwide movement for human centered design with everyone in mind is gaining momentum. The Designing for the 21st Century III Conference is fueled by that momentum and will offer a platform for the next stage of development. Even in a world with extraordinary options for virtual communication, meeting each other face to face opens new doors and creates a catalyst to new ideas and collaboration. This event will make a special effort to provide opportunities for the growing number of practitioners and promoters of universal design to engage with each other as multi-disciplinary colleagues. Designers, educators, leaders from disability, aging and sustainability organizations, business, media and government can invent fresh solutions by crossing familiar boundaries. We urge you to submit proposals for sessions that invite the participation of your audience as well as proposals that involve collaborative presentations.
