The Karlskrona Manifesto for Sustainability Design

As designers of software technology, we are responsible for the long-term consequences of our designs.

As software practitioners and researchers, we are part of the group of people who design the software systems that run our world. Our work has made us increasingly aware of the impact of these systems and the responsibility that comes with our role, at a time when information and communication technologies are shaping the future. We struggle to reconcile our concern for planet Earth and society with the work that we do. Through this work we have come to understand that we need to redefine the narrative on sustainability and the role it plays in our profession.
