About the session

Life-centred design. Planet-centred design. Sustainable UX. Lean design. Digital sobriety and digital waste. Are all of these new fashionable trends or industry’s response to what is happening to the planet?

Eckhart Tolle said: “Awareness is the greatest agent for change”. Are you and your team aware of the environmental impact of your digital services? Putting things into perspective, a simple Google search produces 7 grams of CO2 emissions...

What if you work on innovation projects that are not dedicated to tackling climate change BUT we (Service designers and UX professionals) still want to design sustainable services?

Come along to discuss what we can do and how we can shift our managers and clients’ perspectives on planet as a new respected stakeholder. Expect some stats and forecasts alongside with practical tips and tools.

Key learnings:

  • The environmental impact that our digital products and services create

  • 3 strategic sustainability considerations to include when kickstarting any new design initiatives

  • Doing the right thing: how to bring sustainability perspective impact into ‘business-as-usual’ projects

  • Doing the thing right or sustainable UX
