Inclusive Design: Looking towards the Future

Cwuaat logo

Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge, 23 - 25 March 2020

The CWUAAT series of workshops have celebrated a long history of cross-disciplinarity, including design disciplines, computer scientists, engineers, architects, ergonomists, ethnographers, ethicists, policymakers, practitioners and user communities. This reflects the wider increasing realization over the long duration of the series, that design for inclusion is not limited to technology, engineering disciplines and computer science but instead requires an cross-disciplinary approach. The key to this is providing a platform upon which the different disciplines can engage and see each other’s antecedents, methods and point of view.

CWUAAT has always aimed to be inclusive in the fields that it invites to the workshop. We must include social science, psychologies, anthropologies, economists, politics, governance, and business. This requirement is now energised by imminent new challenges arising from techno-social change. In particular, Artificial Intelligence, wireless technologies and the internet of things generate a pressing need for more socially integrated projects with operational consequences on individuals in the built environment and at all levels of design and society. Business cases and urgent environmental issues such as sustainability and transportation should now be a focus point for inclusion in an increasingly challenging world.
