Workshop – UX Design (engl.)
8. June von 15:00 – 16:30 CESTFree
Nick Hart & Jerome Toole, Wholegrain Digital – Web Design for People and Planet
The internet emits huge volumes of CO2 every minute. Approaching web projects through the lens of sustainability can have benefits not just for the environment, but also in terms of improved SEO, accessibility, user experience, mental health and even cost savings. We’ll explore how you can first measure your website’s impact on the environment, and then take practical steps to manage that impact. We’ll run through a series of practical optimisations together, using real world examples.
