Sustainable UX

A World Usability Day event powered by ÅF

World Usability Day @ÅF

15.30 - 19.00
ÅF Design Office, Grafiska Vägen 2, Gothenburg

A big thank you to everyone that joined us on World Usability Day! We're looking forward to next year!
ÅF Design invites you to an afternoon where we discuss how professionals and organizations can create services and products that are sustainable, relevant, easier to access and simpler to use.

World Usability Day marks a series of events that occur yearly on the same day and the theme this year is Sustainable Green UX. The theme coincides with the recent adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

On the 10th of November, we aim to learn more about sustainable products and services that both improve the human experience and promote environmentally friendly behaviours. Join us!

The event is in English. We'll be treating our guests to fika and drinks.
