Personalization of products and services entails risks but also potentials for sustainability. In this workshop we will have a look at the different opportunities of personalization and discuss this trend from an environmental point of view. We will explain how a user-centred approach during the product development process and entire life cycle of the product can support sustainability goals, not only when applied for personalized products. In this interactive workshop we will elaborate current and future challenges you may be facing in this context and how science can contribute to solving some of the issues.
