Fifth international design event in Oslo

On the 12-13 May the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture, DOGA, hosts an international conference on inclusive design discussing everyday technology, active ageing, ed-tech and innovation in the private and public sectors.
With people-centered design as a point of departure, the conference will discuss how inclusive design methology can be used as a strategy for sustainable innovation.

Onny Eikhaug, head of Innovation for All, explains the conference topic of inclusive design: ”Norway, and the Nordic countries, have ideals of equality and inclusion, protection of human rights, and equal participation in all areas in society. This has given us a position where we have been able to develop the inclusive design approach for reaching goals related to social and democratic ideals. Norway is regarded as leading the way globally in the area of inclusive design. This is due to the public ambitions for our country to be universally designed by 2025. Naturally, the vision also includes practical action plans involving the private and public sectors.”

Innovation for All is a biennial event at the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture, organized in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art in London.
