Det blir två föreläsningar med Patricia Moore under dagen (tiderna är inte helt spikade ännu, men gå till Certecs hemsida – länk ovan – när det närmar sig):
Förmiddag Dignity By Design: Delivering Lifespan Solutions for Global Equity & Inclusion
Creating for our comfort, providing for our existence, responding to the daily challenges that impact our lives, is a matter of Design. There has never been a more exciting or vital time for the presence of Design, and the need for “Humanism” in Design has never been more crucial to our future.
By focusing our talents and resources on the needs of each individual as equal, Designers have given birth to a new order: “Inclusivity By Design.” This "Design For All" philosophic challenge doesn’t simply ask “Why?” but rather, “Why not?”. Designer and Gerontologist Patricia Moore will examine the potential for this new order by Design and explore the global opportunities for our lifespan autonomy.
Eftermiddag Lifespan Design: The Universal Challenge
By creating a consumer existence that celebrates individual capacity with Inclusive Solutions for the Lifespan, Design can be celebrated as the life force it is meant to be. Recognizing that every person has a level of ability is the primary directive of design. It is the designer’s mission to accommodate individual abilities with solutions that embrace every individual’s needs.
With a universal approach, an inclusive agenda, for the creation of the products that we use each day and the places in which we live, work and play, perhaps the critical variable of people, capable of viewing each other as vital and important individuals, regardless of age or ability, will actually come to pass.
Until that time, and as long as manufacturers and politicians mollify themselves, dismissing the ever-growing mass of people deliberately made unable, we will all exist as the potential victims of inadequate and discriminatory design. Not only is now the time for Lifespan Design Inclusivity and Universality, it is the only reason for Design.
