Interview special: Amy Bucher
FRIDAY 20th 10am ET!
We're super lucky to have Amy Bucher PhD back to talk about her behavior change work & her new book. Amy has previously given standout talks at SustainableUX and now she's our first guest on the show (yes, SustainableUX is a "show" now).
I originally asked Amy on back in January. Things ... changed since then. We'll still be talking about BCT and designing for climate behavior, but it's just possible we might talk about current events too.
We'll be live on video via Webex, and Q&A is going to be on the SustainableUX slack.
REGISTER HERE for the live chat & to take part in the Q&A
This is a free event (so why not buy her book??).

Life comes at you fast - a few weeks ago I was putting the finishing touches to a "why you should do more remote work" guide for sustainableUX. Not much need to persuade people now.
Since SustainableUX has always been an online-only event, I'm getting a lot of questions on how to run low-budget virtual conferences and the like. Hope to have a post up about that soon-ish...homeschooling and inventorying our pasta supply has taken precedence.
Hey, where'd the conference go? .... for 4 years I've been running SustainableUX as a one day event. For a whole bunch of reasons, I didn't want to do that this year. Instead, I'm trying out an informal conversational format. Let's see where it takes us.
