The ideal human does not exist. We are all different; in height and breadth, age and gender, in functional capacity and needs. And our functional capacity changes throughout our lives. Diversity in functional capacity is therefore the rule rather than the exception, which is why it should be included when we shape and future-proof the physical surroundings of our daily lives.
The ambition of Universal Design Hub is to be the instigator of a process that alters our understanding of the ideal human. To do this, we will proliferate the value-based term Universal design to help fulfil the pledge of Leave No One Behind from the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
