About this event

This year’s World Usability Day focuses on how UX and Sustainability impact each other. Our goal in this event will be to start a local conversation on how design thinking can help effect change meaningful change in the world.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with intertwined topics, specific programs, and groups of world citizens set to work through 2030, offer an opportunity to help “end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all”—while affording UX professionals to craft and expand our networks.

How can we, through the lens of User Experience Design, lower or remove barriers to adopting sustainable programs and behaviors?

Mini Design Sprint

We’ll engage in a mini design sprint, exploring ideation techniques for a given problem, including both individual and small groups exercises. We will document and share the evening’s results with the UXPA and UN SDG.

Takeaways

  • Participants will leave with a starter solution they can develop more fully
  • Participants will have a sense of the scope of UN SDGs
  • Participants will gain a sense of how different UX functional areas can contribute to the SDGs
  • Individuals and/or groups will be able to complete the full design process on their own
