Workshop: Designing for Good
“How ethical is your upcoming project?”
Everyone is talking about the need to design and build more ethical products and services. But how do we do that?
This practical and fun workshop will help you implement project ethics as part of your design and development process. This is a hands-on workshop, and you’ll be introduced to a variety of techniques and tools to help detect and consider unintended consequences, and to implement an ethical risk framework.
You might recognize the workshop facilitators Bex and Jonny – they have both been hosting the awesome Tech For Good Live podcast at UX Copenhagen since 2017!
