The story that inspired accessibility movement StopGap
After Luke Anderson sustained a spinal cord injury while mountain biking, the active and adventurous world he once inhabited was no longer accessible to him—and neither were many places and events in his city. An engineer by trade, he began to develop brightly-coloured ramps businesses could install at little to no cost. The Ramp Project and StopGap Foundation were born—and they began to change the conversation around accessibility and inclusivity in our cities. Luke’s inspiring talks on social innovation, cities, design, and entrepreneurship are highly sought-after for their poignance, their timeliness, and their ability to get audiences up on their feet, ready to make a change.
