Where is User Experience Design and its industry heading? Why are we still designing and creating products that actively harm our planet? Is it still reasonable to put the consumer first while the Earth is burning and heading towards a climate catastrophe?


Julia and Martin will take a look at the legacy of UX design, it’s current state and ways on how to use it to help the planet to heal. Planet centric design is a methodology for designing products and services that do not harm the planet. We need to design processes and tools that help us navigate complexity and create better solutions for society that fit within the Earth’s boundaries. To create sustainable change, going from humans, to humanity, to thinking about the planet from a systemic, social and long-term perspective. Planet-centric design is a dramatic shift in perspective. We need to move from egoism to ecosystems.
