EMA was created with the realisation that accessibility and inclusion cannot be achieved without significant changes in the way society thinks about this.  Actually, most of society doesn’t think about these issues.  So that is a problem to start with.  How to increase awareness when hardly anyone knows there is something to be aware of.  This is a conundrum, Catch 22, paradox, or which came first the chicken or the egg, kind of problem!  Our deeply felt conviction is that if we can put across these issues in a compelling factual and endearing way we can reach most people’s sense of equity.

Who We are

Our team are all professionals who have by way of personal life changes or other experiences, have become to realise that this issue needs a great deal of work.  All of us have already committed to this work individually in our own areas of expertise.  We realised we needed a common platform to develop these skills towards fulfilling bigger tasks which require more resources than we can achieve alone.

Our Vision

We envision an India, with accessible and inclusive environments, where equal access to infrastructure, and service is ensured for People with Disabilities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to sensitize, inform, and facilitate the change for Accessible environments through building capacities in Universal Design, and fostering an environment that benefits all, including individuals with disabilities, their caregivers, and the broader community.

What We Do

In these areas of Accessibility and Inclusion, we use many different resources to back our advocacy work.  Also, these resources are applied to the advisory and educational material to enable powerful awareness and sensitisation experiences.  We are continually gathering new resources to develop new and contemporary material to better carry out our awareness activities.  We are committed to commissioning original research and development providing high-quality fact-based material for our cause.

Our History

In 2016 Peter Gibson was studying the various government references documents and standards and was sometimes confused by some of the very poor illustrations and diagrams that “supported” the clauses.  Some of the drawings were actually significantly wrong in the way they presented the clauses.  While researching this he found some better illustrations on the internet but realised that in order for the average person to understand these they needed to be easier to understand so he started making 3D illustrations to provide a better comprehension of the “look” of the compliance features.
