Humanity-Centered Design (HumanityD) is an approach to design that expands on the principles of Human-Centered Design (HCD) to address the rights of all humanity and the entire ecosystem. It emphasizes designing for the well-being of all living things and the environment, taking a long-term, systems point of view, and continually testing and refining proposed designs to ensure they meet the concerns of the community they are intended for. HumanityD emphasizes solving core root issues rather than just the symptoms, designing for the entire ecosystem of people, all living things, and the physical environment, and designing with the community to support their concerns. The focus of HumanityD is to create technology products that respect people’s well-being, preserve the human side of the interaction between humans and machines, and design products for people as members of society—more from Don Normam here.
