The I'DGO consortium has hosted its final event; a fringe reception at the Local Government Association annual conference and exhibition (#LGAconf13).

Professor Catharine Ward Thompson opened the evening with an overview of I'DGO findings, before introducing a team of four expert panellists who debated ‘easy wins’ for local government in providing inclusive access to outdoor environments. Chaired by Professor James Goodwin of Age UK, the panel included Paul McGarry of Manchester City Council, Alex Luck of A Luck Associates and Professor Marcus Ormerod of the SURFACE Inclusive Design Research Centre. The audience comprised delegates from a range of organisations, including Sustrans, PRP Architects, the Royal Town Planning Institute and BDP Ltd.
