Abstract

Universally designed conferences, some Norwegian examples

The purpose of this paper is to share some experiences from working with universally designed conferences. Universal Design is about achieving an inclusive society where everyone can participate on equal terms. The paper will explore Universal Design in relation to hosting events and conferences, and will discuss this through examples from universally designed conferences in Norway. On these conferences the focus was on finding solutions that would allow anyone interested in the subject of the conference to attend, and to do so on equal terms.
