Hi all, I do accessible advocacy for cities and public spaces and am gathering information and issues from practitioners. I'm not in the mode of griping about steps and such, but am interested in looking at universal themes, issues, problems and potential solutions.

My approach is that a city which is truly sustainable and inclusive and 'green' is also accessible for as many bodies as possible, as in body types. Wheelchairs, slow walkers, mature, low vision, assistance animals, and yes, all the rest of you 'temporarily-abled' folks.
