What we're about

Action Design is the art and science of designing products that help people take action in their lives.

It entails:

Designing the action itself so that it's easy to take,
Structuring the environment to encourage the action, and
Preparing the person to take the action, once and in the future.

This meetup is for people in the Melbourne area who are already doing this (under the banner of UX, behavioural economics, urban planning, psychology, public policy, data science, and advocacy work), and who want to learn more about these skills. [See http://www.facebook.com/groups/actiondesign/ if you're not in Melbourne]

We’re going for focused, very practical meetings – Meetings will be a mix of Presentations/research discussions, projects/hacks, workshops, debates, and panels/Q&As.
