Project Accessibility 2.0
Launched: October 11, 2018
Completed October 18, 2018
For the second round of this project, we invited Cochrane youth to help design + build solutions to make Cochrane more accessible.
The new cohort of designers kicked things off with a presentation and Q&A session with Sean Crump, CEO of Universal Access. Afterwards they shared a meal while using props to imitate mobility impairments, experiencing first hand some of the challenges facing individuals who are differently-abled.
Participants then designed and built portable accessibility ramps for CHSO housing units, among other creative prototypes.
