Towards a Society for All
Fukuoka 14 October 2012
We recognise the following
For everyone to access environments, goods and services to the greatest extent possible.
For individual and collective differences to be respected.
To be able to develop one’s potential personally and in the community.
To respect and promote the application of these rights.
To promote a sustainable approach for the benefit of future generations.
To devote ourselves to the betterment of society.
To fulfil them we should develop the following attitudes:
To encourage empathy and recognise each other’s needs and aspirations.
To promote collaboration and sharing between the public and private sector, as well as the general public, as a basis for taking the approach forward.
To recognise our differences, but celebrate our commonalities – including shared methods, ideology, practice, goals and challenges.
We therefore intend:
To promote a
Global Commitment towards a Society for All.
To facilitate the co-creation of a simple document to unify Universal Design/Inclusive Design/Design for All/Human-Centred Design community efforts towards a Society for All.
To identify and engage champions from all social sectors to mainstream practice.
To disseminate the need for a human-centred approach as widely as possible.
