The Inclusive Environments programme at Design Council aims to raise awareness about the importance of designing places that meet the needs of the diversity of people who want to use them.


Designing and managing the built environment in an inclusive way is essential if we are to create a fair society and a sustainable future. Inclusive design is the responsibility of everyone who works in the built environment: planners, those who commission new buildings and places, access consultants, designers, engineers, surveyors, property owners and facilities managers.


The course is a free and interactive online training course that provides an introduction to inclusive design relevant to all built environment professionals. It has been developed in partnership with the key institutes and experts on Inclusive Design across the UK to help enable built environment professionals understand and apply inclusive design to the creation of new places.

Each module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Upon completion of the course, a certificate from Design Council will be awarded.
