We – you and I – have the power to change the world. We can improve the everyday lives of people – both at work and at home. We have a direct impact on the success of the organisations we work for, and… depending on how we choose to use our skills we can even change society for the better.
This is a conference about user experience, service design and sustainability – about how to create services that are great for users, business, and the world we live in.
If you in any way are involved in creating digital products and services, join us in Stockholm on 14–16 April 2016. Together we’ll spend three days with exciting talks and workshops, with some of the greatest designers and innovators in the world – getting inspired and perfecting our skills.
