No Barriers USA Summit 2011

About No Barriers

The purpose of No Barriers is to promote innovative ideas, approaches, and assistive technologies which help people with disabilities push through their own personal barriers to live full and active lives. No Barriers achieves this through two main programs: an online educational resource center and through our No Barriers Festivals.

About No Barriers USA Summit 2011

Every couple years, in a naturally beautiful and challenging setting, the international No Barriers Summit brings together adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts as well as scientists and innovators for an outdoor summit unlike any other. The No Barriers Summit combines hands-on clinics, product demonstrations, nature excursions, films, art and music, keynote addresses, leadership exercises and a scientific symposium. We feel there is no way to separate technologies from challenges and believe that inspiration and opportunity fuel achievement.

This Summit will give people who live with challenges the technologies and techniques needed to help them live more active lives.  Not only is the Summit a multi-day event but it is also multi-faceted comprising of:

Summit Symposiums
Adventure Clinics
Innovation Village
Inspiring Speakers and Films
Trailblazer Networking

Each day is about sharing, partnership, inspiration, discovery, exploration and accomplishment. Here, you'll meet people like you -- people who let themselves dream big and are invested in creating a bold vision for tomorrow. No Barriers Summit's replace our perceptions about disability and personal challenges with a renewed belief in what is possible and what will be in the future.
