Speaker: Niklas Jordan

Hej – I am Niklas, I'm just a nice guy who fights for more responsible use of technology.

I really get excited about the potential for technology to improve outcomes in environmental space, focus on real user needs (not marketing needs) and solve problems that have a significant impact on people and planet!

I am Niklas Jordan, a technologist and German-speaking European. I explore different ways to use technology for social and environmental good. Actually, I'm working in a digital agency in Northern Germany and help organisations to use technology with ethics, environmental impact and human rights in mind.

I am a…
1. technology guy.

Honest, sustainable and independent technology is essential to me. I believe that technology should be the property and control of the people who use it, and we who develop technology should do so ethically and responsibly.

I also speak and write regularly about the importance of sustainability, accessibility and responsibility in the technology and design industry.

Topics in tech I care about:
- help social and environmental good organisations to make the most of technology and increase their impact
- Civic and open science technology
- UX, usability and accessibility
- privacy and tech ethics
- Low-cost technology

2. science guy.

Since 2018 I have been studying Earth and Environmental Sciences part-time at the British Open University.

I am mainly interested in the following scientific fields:
- Earth system and climate science
- Natural disasters
- GIS & remote sensing
- Oceanography
- Citizen Science & Open Science
- Climate-related urban planning

Most of what I do will happen between both personalities!
