“(re)Make The World” will explore and give further fuel to the growing community of Makers around the world using their hard earned knowledge and experience to design for people with disabilities. The third industrial revolution is upon us and with it an unprecedented ability to efficiently and cheaply make individually designed projects to empower people in their lives. This session will bring together leaders in the field of Design, Disabilities & Makers, and give practical guidance for realizing the greater potential of the Makers-Revolution around the world.
