Details :

While the recent effort of the HKSAR Government in improving Access to all public facilities is gathering momentum, the present objectives remain largely on compliance with current design standards.  A much needed understanding among the building professionals is therefore required, to meet the realistic needs of the People with Disabilities (PwDs) and their rights as affirmed by the Disability Discrimination Ordinance.

The seminar is to explain the functional principles behind some commonly used design guideline for Barrier Free Access, particularly for wheelchair users and people with low vision.  It allows the Buildings Professionals to understand how the PwDs/end users interact with the built environment, in view of raising awareness and empathy towards Accessible Design.
