On Her Way - S1E1: Safe design of cities
In this episode we talk about safe mobility for people with low vision.
Sight loss significantly affects one's independence leading to limited mobility amongst other things. Many people who lose their sight have to overcome enormous difficulties to get around. Inconsiderately designed public space and mobility options can be challenging, at the same time even small changes to those can make a difference.
Bhavini is an Engagement Manager at London Vision focussing her work on campaigning for and with Blind and partially sighted people for equal access into services such as Transport, Health, and General Access into services.
She is An Ambassador for Retina UK, who has been raising awareness of sight loss within the Asian Community by organising Charity Fundraising Events, via Newspaper Articles, Radio Interviews and Presenting at Community Events.
As always this conversation is brought to you by : Ligia Boueres, Nastya Koro, Sadie Martin and Galuh Rohmah.
On Her Way is a podcast of curious conversations with women like you and me - women who lead. Because guess what? Diverse perspectives make the world a better place. So tune in to follow the paths of some badass (but also normal) women. We talk about how they got there (wherever there is), what moves them (e-scooters, anyone?) and what still needs to change (spoiler alert: a lot).
