Event: designing for behaviour change – repair

03/17/2020 03/17/2020 Australia/Melbourne Event: designing for behaviour change – repair

Great design is human-centred design. It considers how people behave and builds these insights into products and services that work in a seamless way. Ideally, this would extend to making it easy for people to re-use, re-make or recycle products, but we’re not there yet.

In this 2.5 hour workshop, leading waste expert Jenni Downes, will walk you through the methodological approach that BehaviourWorks Australia uses to gather insights on why people do (and don’t do) what we expect them to, how to better understand system challenges / potential barriers to people adopting new behaviours, and give you the tools to do the same for your own repair initiatives.

Remaking e-waste is a week-long event (16 -20 March) as part of Melbourne Design Week 2020. We invite designers, artists, creative writers and anyone interested in exploring solutions to e-waste to engage in a series of speculative exercises to imagine and shape new lives for old electronic devices.
