Issue #8: events and jobs (lots of jobs)
Publishing this one early because events
a short issue this time, as there are a few imminent events you might wanna know about. Like so:
“an opportunity for professionals to increase their knowledge at the intersection of earth-saving design practices and the value-driven role design plays in strategic decision-making and successful business outcomes”. It’s from the Industrial Design Society but plenty applicable for UX folks, probably.
“The Responsible Tech Summit on May 20th seeks to unite a diverse range of stakeholders to build on each other’s work and co-create a tech future aligned with the public interest.”
Friend-of-SustainableUX Tim Frick presenting.
I haven’t dug into this much, and am curious how much their accreditation process costs - and what methodology they use. The advisory board doesn’t have many web folk, but it does have a lot of FinTech and Sustainability folk. tbh, I’m just a teensy bit skeptical of green badges and the like. But I’ll dig a little deeper.
“It’s Time for the Internet to Become More Sustainable, Says New Coalition”. A handy reminder to check out SustainableWebDesign, which looks like it has been updated recently.
Behavior Change Design for Sustainable Development: recorded talk
Plugging this because it was presented by former colleagues of mine, but they know their behavior change onions, therefore worth a listen.
Dark laughs from McSweeny’s
I scored 1.58c, and billions didn’t die. Interesting for the solutions they include and the ones they leave out.
