As UX Designers we always put the user in the center of our work. This is how we define our job. But, in these times we have to take responsibility for more than just our users.
We have to take responsibility for the effect of our work on all actors in the system. Be it other people (besides our users), society or the environment. And we should our power and influence to help others to change.
How can we make our work and the impact of our work more sustainable? And how can we tackle ALL aspects of sustainability? These are the questions, we want to answer.
But we do not want to create just another manifesto, but instead create a practical toolset, that helps us Designers to take action and responsibility. To make our work more sustainable, but also to drive change with our clients, colleagues or managers.
The Sustainable UX manifesto is not be an exclusive thing by a few people. Instead it is created by a growing group of Designers at the moment. You want to join? It’s never too late, and there is still enough work to do. Just drop us a message.
Designers are more powerful than ever. Let’s use this power to be a change.
