Jumpstarting S2030: Tapping the Power of lnclusive Design!
2:00–3:00 p.m. Manila | Zoom
Along with rapid urbanization occurring in many countries in Asia and the Pacific, one of the urban development challenges faced by cities is addressing the needs of their aging population and people with disabilities. By 2030, Asia will be the second-fastest aging region in the world at a 66% expected increase in the 60 and over age group. This spells the need to make urban development and services more inclusive.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to promoting a healthy city that upholds equality and well-being as reflected in the ADB Strategy 2030. ADB, through its Social Development Thematic and Urban Sector Groups, has partnered with the Global Disability Innovation (GDI) Hub in organizing an Inclusive Design Bootcamp for ADB staff to further their professional development in this important area of global policy and practice.
The content of this Bootcamp was driven by GDI Hub’s world-leading experience in inclusive design of the built environment, which is based on University College London (UCL)’s award-nominated Master’s Programme and adapted specifically for ADB operations.
This Bootcamp began with an open-to-all Kickoff Event with global inclusive design leaders. It would then be followed by a 4-session training for 20 selected participants who will learn how to deliver inclusive design outcomes. Participants will be awarded a Certification of Participation from GDI Hub and UCL and will be able to gain ongoing support from the network of alumni and GDI Hub.
Based at UCL, GDI Hub brings vast global research and practice experience, having grown out of the London 2012 Games, and currently operating in more than 35 countries with over 70 partners across program investment of more than £50m.
