COP26: GDI Hub to change the tide on disability inclusion

As the earth warms and water levels rise, we need to design cities that support and adapt to the reality of the human experience.

We need cities that are resilient in changing climates, that have the capacity to flex and adjust around both the needs of our planet AND the needs of our people.

Our future depends on it.

GDI Hub are thrilled to announce that at COP26 we will be placing the human experience at the centre of the climate discussion. In a trailblazer side event on the 11th November, alongside our partners the Asian Development Bank, GDI Hub will argue that as we make plans to halt climate change, to live greener, cleaner, and better, inclusion should be at the core.

The event entitled "Disability, Resilience and Inclusion in our Cities – inclusive design and community-led urban solutions for disability-inclusive climate resilience", will set an agenda for how we ensure that the 1.2 billion of persons with disabilities are able to achieve their full potential, on a healthy and sustainable planet.

We believe in a sustainable future that leaves no one behind, join us to be part of this important conversation.
