The built environment is currently designed and constructed to exclude the meaningful participation of many groups of people. ZaSve believes that the way forward is to equip all stakeholders (users, planners, designers, legislators et al.) in the planning, designing, building and living processes with universal design knowledge to reduce systemic discrimination and give better opportunities for all people.
