Consider ethics!

Hulda Fadnes

Ingrid Sunde

Short workshop - in English

What we create has a huge influence on how people behave and live their lives. We are trained to solve problems and make people’s lives better. Rarely do we consider what ‘better’ actually is.
One can argue that ethics are a personal preference. But what happens if we actually get the conversation going and allow for all team members to voice their point of view? In this workshop we will discover how our ethics and beliefs align with projects we work on. We will explore the intended and unintended concequeses of our work on different timescales. This will allow us as teams to map out what “better” actually might look like and which risks to consider moving on - for any given problem.

The key takeaways from this practical and collaborative workshop will be

- how to discuss ethics in a group
- learn how to think about consequences long term
- build understanding around different perspectives when it comes to ethics
- train on how to talk about your own ethics
- create a safe space for sharing.
