Learning by Doing
In this full-day workshop, we emphasize a hands-on approach because we firmly believe in the power of learning by doing.
Participants will be engaged in a range of practical exercises that not only bring theoretical concepts to life but also foster a deeper understanding and mastery of the subject
Bridging the Gap
To ensure a comprehensive learning experience, we've designed the workshop to seamlessly bridge the gap between theory and practice.
We will facilitate and guide you through a series of group activities, all based on a real-life project. Participants will also be provided with the necessary theoretical grounding for the tools that we will use.

This workshop will teach participants a set of practical activities and tools to assess, evaluate and build specifically with ethics front and center.

Add To The List
This initiative was started by Randstad UX for the R'UX Network & Community. It escalated quickly and we spread beyond the Randstad. Because there are very important topics in this awareness week, we thought it would be better to reskin the portal without our own branding, and only add our logos to the events we organise ourselves.
To make this initiative work for as many important voices as possible, we decided to also list other relevant events around the topics and themes of Design for Tomorrow. If you are organising relevant events, please feel free to add them to the list. That way more people can hear about ethics, sustainability, human centered and human centric design and every other important topic in the design world today.
