Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Pod
The legacy of the London Paralympics
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is one of the most accessible areas in the whole of the UK. We've worked hard to ensure that the Park really is a park for all. It's been designed to be as accessible and inclusive as possible for a wide range of visitors, employees and future residents.
It's also home to the now world renowned 'Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDI Hub)' - a research and practice centre driving disability innovation for a fairer world.
In this episode we hear from the founders of the hub, Professor Cathy Holloway, Academic Director of GDI Hub and Professor at UCL’s Interaction Centre, Director of Inclusive Design Iain McKinnon and CEO Vicki Austin, who also both worked on the Paralympic legacy in the build up to 2012.
The GDI Hub is also one of 20 organisations signed up to the International Paralympic Committee's 'We the 15' campaign that's unveiled at this year's Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Opening Ceremony - we're joined by Craig Spence from the IPC.
