As the initiative is related to inclusive architecture and urban planning, it is also connected with accessibility following a Universal Design or Design for All approach. It is an opportunity to highlight accessibility as part of the wider sustainability debate and mainstream it in architecture and design. In this way, it also relates to Standards, such as the new European Standard on accessibility and usability of the built environment (EN 17210).
EDF is supporting this initiative as an official partner to make the link between professionals (designers, architects, construction businesses, workers, urban planners, and academia, amongst others) and persons with disabilities. We believe that with awareness raising, training, and relevant EU legislation we can improve accessibility of the built environment and public spaces via the New European Bauhaus as a common denominator.
