A conversation about the importance of convenience and accessibility in our public spaces.

There is a certain convenience required for moving around the city. Our urban spaces need to be walkable, with good access to public transport, schools, hospitals, groceries and entertainment.

But who is the city actually convenient for? And what is actually serving to excludes many people from using them? Is the city access equitable, affordable and sustainable? Are cities designed for convenience? What makes our cities inconvenient, and how could that be improved?

This webinar will explore the current barriers that people face when accessing the city. We will share the latest design and research in London & Warsaw, by introducing work on pedestrian access, neurodiverse experiences of high streets and a new model for public toilets. The panel will talk about what more can be done and open up the discussion to the audience.
