http://www.ud2010.net/index.en.html Japan's first international Universal Design (UD) Conference was held in Yokohama in 2002. The declaration adopted on the last day stated that UD means the building of a social environment that respects the dignity of each individual, and that it was of urgent importance to create a more humane social system by rebuilding relations between users and designers and producers and by reinventing a system that places human beings at the center in all respects. Since then, we have all been involved in realizing the principles and philosophy contained in the declaration. Following on another successful Conference in Kyoto 2006, we will seek to achieve a higher plateau of UD society by coming together in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture in 2010 to share with our global friends and partners outcomes of our latest research and practices as well as to send our collective vision for the sustainable future through a cordial and constructive exchange of information among men and women committed to the realization of UD society everywhere. The theme of the third conference will be For the People and the Earth of Tomorrow - Towards a Sustainable Co-existence. We plan to have special lectures and keynote addresses at the public symposium on the first day and a very active dialogue and exchange of opinions throughout the plenary and sub-sessions.
