    Abstract

    Recruiting students onto ergonomics courses continues to be difficult despite clear business cases being presented for the importance of ergonomics as a driver in organisational effectiveness and safety and its crucial role in securing inclusivity and usability in product design. Growth requires concerted efforts to make our discipline relevant to contemporary society. One way of achieving this is presented, through linking ergonomics to citizen centred design of future cities.
