What kind of future are we designing for?

This year's World Usability Day topic is on "Designing for the Future we want" - and what best way to celebrate than with a panel discussion with members from a range of backgrounds and organisations. The topic was inspired from the 17 Sustainable Development goals set by the United Nations, which cover anything in between creating sustainable cities, to gender equality, climate action, and even well being. You can read more about these 17 Sustainable Development goals here

As UX Practioners in both theory and practice, we generally find ourselves working for organizations that focus on the future as it relates to their bottom line, but is it our responsibility to influence the direction of the future of the communities we're part of - both professionally and personally? 

Join us on November 14th to discuss:

- Design responsibility in the digital world 
- Remaining environmentally conscious 
- Creating sustainable and inclusive futures 
- and many more topics!

We will be crowd sourcing questions for the second half of the night, so come prepared.

This evening is sponsored by our garcious hosts at Farfetch who will be providing refreshments and food. 

See you on the night!

Organiser

UXPA UK

The UK Chapter of the User Experience Professionals’ Association (UXPA) is a not-for-profit organisation run exclusively by volunteers. We are affiliated with the International UXPA.

 

We bring together UK professionals who share a vision of creating compelling technology that meets users’ needs, desires and abilities. These professionals come from a broad family of disciplines such as user-centred design, research, and human factors.

 

Through our events and other work, we:

 

- Provide UX practitioners with opportunities for learning and professional growth
- Champion the benefits of user-centred design techniques and approaches

 

Our Chapter is governed by some policies and bylaws of UXPA International, but has enough freedom to define many of its processes and policies. All of our bylaws are described in our Constitution, which was ratified in July 2013.

 

As a volunteer organisation, we do our best to support the community. Participation from, and collaboration with, the community is crucial.
