International Women's Week: inclusive cities
We, along with your help, are beginning to see that an inclusive city is green, affordable, accessible, healthy and includes tailored facilities that cater to gender, age, culture and beyond. We have also learnt that the method as well as the outcome should be inclusive; from the data we base our planning on, the education system in which we study, who we involve in our design processes and how decisions are made. Many questions still remain regarding an inclusive city but we already have some inspiring answers and initiatives on which to focus. What could you change in your environment today to make it more inclusive?
