Global Interview 2016
In Desember 2016 we interviewed the international experts who participated in "The 6th International Conference for Universal Design in NAgoya 2016".
We asked them about their impression of Japanese and (host city of this conference) Nagoya's UD, and what they think is necessary for 2020 Tokyo Olympic UD when compared with UD in their home country or their business.
We greatly appreciate the experts.
[Global Interview 2016] It would be very appreciated if Japan or IAUD could provide and share information and strategies to Europe.
