What is inclusion?
People are left behind
Some are able to participate
EVERYBODY can join in anywhere
What can be done to achieve inclusion?
- obstacles must be eliminated
- complicated descriptions must be simplified
- people should learn to think differently (prejudices against the performance of disabled people must be put into perspective)
- the range of suitable leisure activities must be increased
- keep talking about inclusion to ensure that as many people as possible learn about it
Inclusion according to DIN 18034:2019-12
DIN 18034:2019-12 defines planning objectives and requirements with regard to accessibility. The “Two-senses-principle” and the “Two-ways-principle” must be fulfilled. “Guidance systems” are also suitable for supporting accessibility.
