Redesigning using various design concepts like Accessible design/ Universal.
Design and sustainable design will not only help build green but also
accessible to everyone.

The presentation opens up briefly to explain efforts put in by the disability
community in having standards enacted like the ADA and CSA. These
standards when applied will not only ease in providing access to various
spaces but will also make them inclusive. The presentation details how
spaces can be rebuilt using the concepts of Universal Design and

their functionalities, ability to provide safety and aid in building a healthy
