  • Published on: Dec 03, 2023

On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, ARIDO aligns with the UN's call to "leave no one behind." As we commemorate the halfway point to the 2030 Agenda, we acknowledge the ongoing barriers faced by persons with disabilities.

Sustainable Development for All: Beyond beneficiaries, persons with disabilities are active contributors in social, economic, and political life. Their inclusion is vital for achieving Sustainable Development Goals. ARIDO echoes the UN's call for their presence at decision-making tables.

The Ongoing Role of ARIDO: As designers of spaces for humans, ARIDO members hold a unique perspective on accessibility challenges. We wield the influence to shape spaces, incorporating barrier-free and universal design principles. ARIDO advocates for a truly inclusive world where everyone, regardless of ability, enjoys equal rights and access.

Designing an Inclusive Future: In 2023 and beyond, let's intensify discussions and actions for a more disability-friendly world. ARIDO remains committed to designing spaces that empower, uplift, and champion inclusivity. Together, we can craft environments that celebrate the diversity of all individuals.
