NRAC seminars - 14 October 2021 - first speaker announcement

Posted on 2nd September 2021 by NRAC Administrator

Booking is now open for the third NRAC online event on Thursday 14 October 2021 - the session will be from 9:30am to 12:45pm.

We are delighted to announce our first speaker NRAC Consultant Jean Hewitt, Senior Inclusive Design Consultant & Trainer at Buro Happold, will be talking about the development of a new Design for the Mind PAS Standard with primary sponsor TfL on 14 October. The second and third speakers will be announced shortly.

BSI are developing a new PAS standard entitled Design for the Mind, Neurodiversity and the Built Environment. NRAC member and appointed technical author for the PAS, Jean Hewitt, will give an overview of the technical components of the proposed new standard, which has been drafted with the support of a steering group of leading experts and is due to be published early next year. The PAS will be an important first step towards establishing much needed guidance in this area, with the aim of making environments easier for the significant number of people with sensory processing conditions who experience sound, touch, smell and light differently.

£50 (including VAT) for NRAC members and supporters
£60 (including VAT) for non-members
