From a Renovation of Acceptance to Support and Overcoming Challenges

By: Alyson Wyers - May 8, 2015
These lectures on disability discuss physical limitations and challenges from a number of angles. Whether it's changing societal perceptions or technological advancements, these talks supply plenty of motivation and will encourage you to be more empathetic.

Professional speaker and youth activist Spencer West shares how he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and funds for poverty-alleviating projects in Kenya. He also doesn't have legs (they were amputated at the age of 5 due to an illness) so he made the climb on his hands, in his wheelchair and with the help of his friends. Mileha Soneji's design speech is on how we create products and spaces with simple innovations to make a world of difference for physically disabled people. Bionic limbs also offer a lot of promise, as these lectures on disability demonstrate.
