UX Edinburgh x People, Planet, Pint™: Sustainability Meetup

June 1 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved

Exciting news! In June, People, Planet, Pint will be hosted in collaboration with Edinburgh UX meetup and its brilliant host, Mike Jefferson.

The design community plays a crucial role in crafting solutions that resonate with users’ values, fostering eco-conscious behaviors, and promoting regenerative practices. At PPP, we aim to bring together communities and spotlight the necessity of interdisciplinary approaches to sustainability.

Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved.

Your local meetup is a great place to start your journey or continue learning, and meet diverse people to chat about life and how we can sustain it. Every job is a climate job, so come along and learn about how you can take action, as well as what is going on locally.

We welcome everyone, regardless of their experience or background. People Planet Pint is a space where everyone can feel comfortable learning about sustainability and sharing their ideas.

The Edinburgh UX meetup invites UX people of all flavours to a monthly meeting of minds – a place to share ideas and indulge in idle banter. Each meeting has a general theme – just a suggestion to get things rolling, conversationally speaking anything goes! Whether you be designer, developer, guerrilla, enthusiast or just passing by, come join us on the last Monday of the month.

What to expect on the day

Join us for an exciting day featuring talks and fireside chats from members of the UX and PPP community. Stay tuned as we announce our lineup of speakers soon.

Get inspired by Adam Bastock, the creator of People, Planet, Pint, as he shares his inspiring work aiming to guide 1 million SMEs on their journey to net zero by 2025.

Experience the event firsthand through our live stream and participate in engaging interactions with the audience.

After the discussions, take the opportunity to network and mingle with fellow attendees over a pint from one of our favorite local brewers, Bellfield.

Be sure to arrive early! The first 33 people will receive a complimentary pint.
