Talk details

Designing for healthier lives 

Nurturing our bodies has always been at the heart of being a human. Sleeping, eating, moving, feeling; all in order to be able to live—to perform, to connect and to feel good. Throughout history, humans have tried to accelerate these behaviours; from inventing bicycles and forks, to body gadgets that aim to measure what we do.

But what’s the point of knowing how much you weigh and how long you sleep? Information loses its power, if it doesn’t empower you to do something that’s meaningful to you. That doesn’t mean that innovation won’t sell—our success-oriented industry perfects the way of convincing people to purchase and engage in this very instance—but have we also found a way of supporting people to live (and feel) better in the long run

Sara will tackle these questions, reflecting on the learnings and failures from her career journey focused on designing wellbeing experiences; aiming to shed light on drivers that might take the UX field into the future of designing for healthier outcomes of all.
