Introduction by James Thurston of the global disability advocacy non-profit G3ICT

Due to a neuro-muscular condition, Victor Pineda stopped walking when he was five. By high school, he needed a machine to help him breathe. This life experience shaped his work and passions, and he became a leading global human rights advocate, scholar and expert on inclusive urban development. He'll share the groundbreaking work cities, technology companies and universities are doing to re-imagine urban spaces and unlock our collective potential.
