Ethical Leaflets for your value-based projects


Technical solutions have side-effects. We can make these explicit so people can make an informed decision to use or agree with a solution, or challenge it when the side-effect are worse than the cure. I present a method to make values the core of your project and to tell your users that you did.


Technical solutions have side-effects. How can we make these explicit so people can make an informed decision to use or agree with a solution, or challenge it when the side-effect are worse than the cure.

In an interactive session I present my prototype how to make values the core of your project development. And how you can use ethical leaflets to inform your users/citizens/community about the dilemmas you face and the decisions you made.

The goals of this session are: - Improve and alter my method to be suitable for MIXIT attendees. - Discuss how values can become and stay the driver of our projects - Discuss community-empowerment through information sharing; when does sharing become overload? - Testing the tool in general

This session is for:

  • People working in teams on sensitive tech-projects.
  • Workshop leaders who advice projectsteams on ethical tech use.
  • People facing dilemma’s in their work where tech obscures the real ethical implications.
