Abstract

After reviewing over 150 sites in Hong Kong with a significant team of auditors who are people with disabilities, we feel obliged to take a good step forward to propose new strategies and design guidelines to enhance the accessibility of our City to make our Built Environment more inclusive. This presentation covers observations from the site audits and make potential proposals for positive changes.
