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.
