Building a more ethical future using Speculative Design

Ethical decision-making is hard. Business interests often lead the conversation, prioritizing financial gains in the short term, sometimes at the expense of more ethical choices for both the end user, the society and the planet. Yet, we can leverage the Speculative Design approach to sufficiently stretch the horizon, working on a medium-long timeframe to make more balanced and better decisions.
