Convention “Science Meets Practice: Focusing on Individuals – Inclusion – Enabling Community”2016.02.19

Focusing on individuals marks the socio-political and technical paradigm shift since the 1990s that concentrates on designing assistance for psychological and physical disabilities. The planned Federal Participation Act and enhanced orientation towards individual requirements come under its purview.

The convention aims to on the one hand streamline the definition of the multifarious concept of focusing on individual and on the other hand, throw a light on the social and political challenges. It concerns people with disabilities, professionals at ambulant and resident disabled care facilities and those from various public institutions and scientists.

Wolfgang Frey discusses “How do we want to live in the future? Spatial Planning as Stimulus for Inclusive Societies.” with Dominik Peter (Berliner Behindertenverband e.V.) and Prof. Brigitte Caster (Professor of Organization of Construction at the Technical School of Cologne).
