Sharon Yeheskel-Oron – Manager of the Global Professional Development Department, Beit Issie Shapiro
The Beit Issie Shapiro’s accessible and inclusive playground, Friendship Park, was selected for the Zero Project Impact Transfer Program. The model is described in this lecture.
The lecture is premised on the understanding that children lead the inter-generational change regarding the inclusion of people with disabilities in society. Building inclusive play spaces provide children with opportunities to create a change.
The lecturer describes a park whose plan is based on universal design principles that enable leisure and recreation activities for children with disabilities and parents with disabilities.
