Online accessibility training: first cohort May 22nd

Inclusivity is key

Accessibility is about a dedication to inclusivity for everyone. It represents a shared duty to foster environments that empower rather than disable, enabling individuals to flourish. The essence of digital innovation lies in creating spaces that everyone can navigate and enjoy. Inclusivity isn't just a feature; it's the foundation of truly impactful design.

Why Accessible Design Matters?

Accessible design isn't just about meeting new legal requirements—it's about recognizing the value and necessity of creating digital environments that cater to all users, regardless of their abilities. This approach enriches user experiences, broadens your audience, and fosters a deeper connection with your content. The essence of digital innovation lies in creating spaces that everyone can navigate and enjoy. Inclusivity isn't just a feature; it's the foundation of truly impactful design.

The upcoming European Accessibility Act, set for June 2025, may be propelling these ideals into the spotlight by mandating WCAG 2.1 compliance, but the truth is, designing with everyone in mind has always been the right approach.

The question isn't just about how to comply with upcoming regulations, but how to embrace and lead with accessible design principles. The European Accessibility Act will make life easier for at least 87 million people – almost one in five Europeans – who have disabilities, including many older people, and for those who have a temporary impairment.

The European Accessibility Act (Directive 2019/882) is a landmark EU law which requires some everyday products and services to be accessible for persons with disabilities. It follows a commitment on accessibility made by the EU and all Member States upon ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
