At the end of October, Design Council CABE launched its Inclusive Environments film, with the aim of raising awareness of the importance of designing places that meet the diverse needs of the people who want to use them. CEW recommends you watch and learn. 

If you work in any aspect of the built environment what you do has an impact on the people in Wales that use the environment, your work helps to shape. That means all of us within the built environment process – no matter what element of the supply chain you sit within – need to be more informed about how that space is designed. 

The Design Council CABE film explaining the importance of inclusivity in the design process is a great way to start learning about your built environment. This is what the team said about the film and its purpose – “We believe designing and managing the built environment in an inclusive way is essential to creating a fair society and a sustainable future for everyone. Our short film highlights the importance and benefits of inclusive environments across a range of industries and organisations. 

“Commissioned as part of our Inclusive Environment CPD training, we want as many people as possible to know about our dynamic and engaging multimedia-based experiential training platform which supports current and future working practices across the built environment. To support the delivery of the online training we are looking for partners to match-fund the initial government grant and further promote this initiative.” 

If you’d like more information on how you can be involved, please do get in touch with Design Council, or you can read more about the project here: designcouncil.org.uk/inclusive-environments.
I hope that you enjoy the film, which you can watch here

Please feel free to share it far and wide.
