The concept of sustainable and ethical design is nothing new. However, when we try to juxtapose these concepts with digital design, it is difficult for us to indicate basic guidelines, rules or requirements.

According to pre-pandemic research, it is estimated that by 2030, the grid will generate 20% of the world's electricity demand. With the pandemic-induced rapid migration to the virtual world, we are consuming and creating more and more digital products at an accelerated pace. With this in mind, we can expect that "2030" is much closer than we think, and the context of sustainable digital design and digital ecology is becoming more and more urgent.

In this lecture, we will talk about how to consciously design digital products, how to use commonly available tools and above all: what can we as designers do to pave the paths of ethical and sustainable design in such a powerful medium as the Internet?
