What is Universal Design?

Universal Design is the design of products and environment to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. ”

For the Built Environment, it focuses on creating an inclusive society, where the young, the elderly, and persons with limited mobility can continue to enjoy living in familiar surroundings with their families and friends.
