12 days till the conference!
We have a schedule
We’ve finalized our schedule. This year we’re starting at 8.50am ET and finishing around 4pm. Not in the US? Here’s a handy time zone converter.
There are Tickets
Not got yours yet? Go to https://sustainableux.com/tickets/. We’re asking that you give to a climate charity as a thank-you to our speakers.
We have totes
The best conference audience deserves the very best in totes and schwag. Claim yours.
Logo sponsorship – your name in lights
If you or your organization gives more than $100 to a climate cause in the name of SustainableUX, we’ll put your logo on a slide during our opening remarks. This is the cheapest marketing opportunity, like, ever.
Feeling competitive? The more you give over $100, the bigger we’ll make your logo. (Anyone remember the Million Dollar Homepage?)
Just send us an email with your logo and the details of your donation, then tune in on the 12th to bask in the brand synergy.
Help us out: tweets you can send
Help make SustainableUX a success - and raise money for climate causes.
With a marketing budget of zilch we need all the help we can get with signal boosting.
If you could let people know about the event, on twitter, linkedin, your company Slack, etc… we’d appreciate it. Here are some suggested posts.
Ethics, urbanism, P2P web, Data Viz, Data Centers, Research, and carbon: Just some of the great topics at #sustainableUX Feb 12th online and remote. Tickets by donation to climate causes. https://sustainableux.com/tickets/
Design as usual is bad for the climate. I’m finding out how to do my part at @sustainableux Feb 12th, online. www.sustainableux.com #climatechange #ux
I’m going to SustainableUX, the remote design conference for folks who want to do something about climate change. It’s non-profit but you get a ticket by giving any amount to a climate cause: https://sustainableux.com/tickets/
WHAT WE’VE BEEN READING
It’s hard to know whether things like this make that much of a difference, but it takes a few seconds to sign the Copehagen letter. If nothing else, we like how it frames the role of design in society:
“We will apply the means at our disposal to move our societies and their institutions forward.”
Wondering how to best apply your time and skills to helping solve the world’s problems?
Peter Singer’s book, The Most Good You Can Do is for you. It doesn’t pull any punches, and is brutally effective at striping away sentimental idealism in favor of a hard calculus of Good. Very readable, but now we have to go take a hard look in the mirror.
Charlie Lloyd’s newsletter is always worth a read. The recent issue is just excellent. https://tinyletter.com/vruba/letters/6-92-small-cat
Yum! A look at the glorious Bug and Algae buffet of the future.
That’s it! See you on the 12th Feb.
