EIDD Design for All Europe is a unique international platform for different organizations with a common goal: a more inclusive Europe for everyone.
Both visionary and realists, we build roads and bridges, programmes and politics, scientific tools and curricula, new products and services. Associations, academies, design centres, cities and regions work together in EIDD to change the quality of life in Europe through design. The history of EIDD started 28 years ago as advanced thinking on disability in modern society. In the meantime, our world has changed completely, but barriers don’t disappear so easily: there are even more new challenges! We live longer and work longer, in big cities or rural areas, every day testing and improving accessiblity in its physical, social and cultural meaning. EIDD Design for All Europe now, at the beginning of 2021, has 44 member organizations from 23 countries. It is so good to work together, share visions and practical solutions and build the critical mass we need for real inclusion. Would you like to join us?
