We are aiming to achieve "pleasing UD" as seen from all types of viewpoints by promoting research themes taking living style scenarios as our approach and having the goal of creating a living space where anyone can live a full and abundant life.
Seamless mobility: means aiming to achieve safe and comfortable commuting and movement that lets anyone go wherever they want.
We are aiming to achieve a workstyle for the future where all people unique in their own special way, can work freely and happily.
We are aiming for a world where anyone can obtain the same level and quality of information.
We continually work towards merging the seemingly incompatible themes of a so-called Universal Design aimed at being acceptable to anyone and anybody, and the concept of Fashion that emphasizes both individuality and fashion.
We convey issues in UD via the media to related organizations and carry out activities that urge society to guarantee equal unbiased information access for all those who need it including the disadvantaged.
Our activities include assessing, evaluating, and proposing methods and techniques for communication and guidance that are visually easy-to-understand during emergencies.
Our activities are aimed at promoting UD standardization that all IAUD members can put to work for their own needs and proposing planning for UD standardization that can be widely applied throughout our society with the ultimate aim of spreading universal design concepts.
