Universal design, inclusive design, innovation for all, and accessibility are important concepts that aim to make products, environments, and services usable and accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities, age, or background. This makes them important strategies to achieve the UN’s sustainable development goals, Agenda 2030. (See article Universal Design – terms and terminology)
