As a part of #Access4All awareness campaign, CBM and Youth Ki Awaaz is hosting a public event on May 27, 2017 in New Delhi.

As a part of a yearlong awareness campaign by CBM and Youth Ki Awaaz, a youth oriented online platform, we are organising a conversation with participants drawn from diverse background to engage on moving from ‘disability-friendly’ to ‘design for all’. The event will kick-off at 6:00 PM on 27th May 2017 at India International Centre in New Delhi.

Our public spaces, transport and basic services remain inaccessible for millions, despite an unprecedented policy focus on accessibility. Meet the experts and professionals to talk about creating products, services, infrastructure, events, spaces and communication that are 100% accessible for all! Let's create a shift in our conversation, from ‘disability-friendly’ to ‘design for all’, and advocate for accessibility as a basic human right.
