We are three enthusiastic students who want to stimulate the accessibility for wheelchair users. Our idea is to make a product that makes moving on grass, sand and muddy undergrounds possible. We also want it to be a low cost solution that is usable by the users themselves. How? We will make an add-on for already existing wheelchairs. All the users have to do is buy our tire, add it to their wheelchair and enjoy festivals, parks and beaches. Why? We want wheelchair users to enjoy festivals as much as we do, without being held up by muddy or difficult undergrounds. Being able to go wherever they want is what we want to achieve! At the festival, we want our product to be tested by users and gain some useful feedback to improve our product that extra more!
Our product is made for using at festivals, parks, beaches… So festival scene, where we want to test it, will be very valuable because we can gain feedback from our direct users and target group. By gaining this feedback, we can improve it that extra more.
Festival: Welcome to the Village
Period: Summer 2018
WELCOME TO THE VILLAGE
Leeuwarden – THE NETHERLANDS | A small village with large ambitions. During the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015 in New York, a list with 17 Sustainable Development Goals was drafted by 193 world leaders. These goals are the source of inspiration for Welcome to the Village.
