World Usability Day


Our goal is to raise standards so that technology works to harness human potential. Every second Thursday in November, events occur around the world that bring together different communities to celebrate how we can make our world easy for all.

 

The goal of the World Usability Initiative (WUI) is to connect the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and the User Experience (UX) community and everyone who believes that great design is inclusive and usable by all, to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by establishing World Usability Day as an internationally observed day, listed on the United Nations calendar. Help us acheive this goal!

World Usability Day Estonia 2022

World Usability Day (WUD) Estonia is the first conference for user experience specialists and the largest UX, web and interaction design event in the Baltics. This year’s WUD theme is “Our Health”. The health of both our planet and ourselves is important for life on Earth. Technology can either damage or repair it. Digital solutions can have a huge impact on our mental and physical health or help us fight pollution and deforestation, for example.

WUD 2019 took place for the first time in Kultuurikatel hall and tickets were sold out (almost 600 participants)! Watch a video from the WUD Estonia 2019 conference.
