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.
Designers are more powerful than ever. Let’s use this power to be a change. And we should use our power and influence to help others to change.
But 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.
We do not want to create just another manifesto, but instead build a practical toolset, that helps us Designers to take action and responsibility. To make our work more sustainable, but also and even more to drive change with our clients, colleagues or managers.
We want to invite you to create this with us based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). You can use our Workshop template to tackle one or more of the SDGs. The results will be collected and provided here for the whole community.
The Sustainable UX manifesto is a non-profit project and will always be. We want to drive change not be an exclusive thing by a few people.
You want to contribute? Than we want to invite you, to join the global Kickoff.
