About the session

A hands-on workshop that invites participants to consider a real policy design or service delivery context and how environmental impacts could be designed for and weighed against other priorities.

The session will allow participants to propose contexts/ ‘problem spaces’ from their work where better environmental impacts could be designed for, before groups choose one to dive into and sketch a potential solution for. 

The latest iteration of the Greener Service Principles will be there as a guide for this process, with a particular focus on when there might be win-wins between environmental outcomes and usability/utility, cost, time, security, accessibility/inclusivity, reliability and other priorities, and when and how tradeoffs might be made.

Participant takeaways:

 

  • Experience with considering and designing for the full range of priorities driving service projects, including environmental outcomes, at both the policy formation and delivery stages
  • Hands-on experience with the Greener Service Principles and the opportunity to influence their evolution
  • Insight into the open, collaborative and iterative process by which the Greener Service Principles are being developed
  • An update on the development of ‘Planet-centred Design’ in government and the work that has been undertaken since the initial SDinGOV talk in 2023

Themes:

Service design, Policy Design, Sustainability, Digital transformation, Systems thinking, Usability, Security, Accessibility

This session:

  • Includes interaction
  • Has a number cap: 40 participants
