"The future is digital, defining how we will live, work, and interact with each other. Whether technology becomes an empowering force for good or a sower of more division and exclusion will depend on the choices we make now."

Unlocking the Potential of Sustainable Digital Product Development
In a world increasingly shaped by digital transformation and urgent climate concerns, businesses face the dual challenge of innovating responsibly. How can we leverage technology to not only improve user experience but also contribute to a greener world?
This is the question at the heart of our event aimed to provide you with actionable insights into developing digital products that are not just cutting-edge but also sustainable.
This event is tailored for professionals in digital product and technology roles, particularly those in enterprise settings who are keen to integrate sustainability into their product roadmap.
Join us for an enlightening evening at Red Badger HQ, where we'll delve into two key areas of sustainable digital product development:
Green Energy & Smart UX
Hear from James Ferguson, Head of UX at OVO who will be sharing insights into how user experience design can be a powerful tool in encouraging more sustainable energy consumption. Delve into the redesign of the OVO mobile app, aimed at nudging users towards greener choices.
Innovative Data Centre Sustainability
Mark Bjornsgaard of Deep Green Technologies will explore how data centres, often seen as environmental liabilities, can be transformed into assets that contribute to sustainability by capturing and repurposing the heat they generate, thereby reducing their environmental impact.
This is a free in-person event giving delegates access to network with like-minded professionals from Enterprise organisations passionate about building better, more sustainable digital products that customers love. Refreshments and drinks will be provided.
This event is limited on space and tickets will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
