Research centre for inclusive access to outdoor environments - our work covers all types of landscape, in urban or countryside contexts, the benefits it can offer and the barriers to access.
Good design for inclusive access is central to a number of policy areas: health and wellbeing; social inclusion; tourism; countryside access; urban renaissance and sustainability; environmental justice; safety and crime; and the implementation of Disability Discrimination Act and Race Relations legislation.
Our work is cross-cutting, drawing on multidisciplinary expertise to explore how public open space, urban parks and squares, green spaces and rural areas can contribute to quality of life.
In association with Landscape Architecture, Edinburgh College of Art and the School of the Built Environment, Heriot-Watt University.
