Today we are in the middle of a climate crisis, our oceans are turning into plastic landfills, and animal species are going extinct daily. Interlace that with the ever-growing software demand that companies have and the footprint on our environment grows exponentially.
We, as digital designers should start reflecting on the impact of our work beyond the user. We are in a position to influence the impact our products have on the world.
This lecture will dive into how digital design affects the environment and how we can embed various practices to ensure we are creating experiences that are sustainable by design.
