Using UX and Research for Regenerative Design [Part-1]

November 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

🚨// Save your spot, here: https://bit.ly/3CJsKV0 //🚨

The practice of design has gone through a journey of constant evolution in many (un)predictable ways. To be able to correspond to ever-changing societal demands through time and space, design broadly went from the object/product-centered design to human-centered design, UX, UI, and service design. We are now foreseeing an urgent need to shift towards life-centered design 🍃.

Transitioning to a new life-centered design approach is the only way if we are to respond to existing social and environmental needs. Join us for this free upcoming 2-part Workshop, taking place November 10th and November 17th at 18:00H CET. 📍

Ready?! 🙌

All you need to attend is a computer and internet connection.

📌 Part 1 of the workshop will showcase the potential of UX and design research as a game-changer in all its stages of the design process to contribute to a prosperous and regenerative future for all living beings. We will think through different qualitative methodologies and organic intelligence, human and life-centered design, and add concrete examples and real-life suggestions on how to act, think and design towards life-centered solutions.

📌 Part 2 will be based on the results of the previous cycle. We will then take a more hands-on approach and cover:

Systems map of the challenges addressed
Definition of the research objectives
Creation of the guidelines for a semi-structured interview
Learning to ask the right questions to get to the right answers for the creation of integral solutions.
