According to the 2009 National Disability Strategy Consultation Report, Shut Out: The Experience of People with Disabilities and their Families in Australia, 27% of the submissions noted built environment as one of the main barriers to social inclusion faced day-to-day by people with disabilities, as well as their family and carers. Social exclusion and isolations can affect wellbeing, mentally and physically (National People With Disabilities and Carer Council, 2009).
Sonya Veronica Iskandar presents an interactive discussion between a guest panel and the audience, focusing on inclusive design in public spaces (community centres, libraries, restaurants, etc.) and its correlation to wellbeing.
