Usability Professionals' Association
2009 International Conference
Bringing Usability to Life
Making everyday things better
Designing for a Sustainable World shows how usability can apply to all of what we do and build. We look at all products and services - buildings, roads, or consumer products; business services or healthcare systems - throughout their life cycle. The impact focuses on our environment - energy, water, soil, and more. Are the products and services user and environmentally friendly? We must consider all these are questions as we design, purchase, use and dispose of products each and every day. This session will include a panel of usability professionals who work in the area of sustainability. They will discuss their work and the merits of this approach.
