Bringing local UX to a global audience
Ever wondered how UXers in Manila are thinking? Or what the hot topics are in Nairobi? Or what keeps experience designers up at night in Geneva? Now is your chance to listen in or talk to the world!
We are local and independent UX event organizers from all corners of the world. We love bringing knowledge to our communities in face-to-face events, and are now expanding into the virtual space, together.
In June 2020 we joined forces to bring 24 hours of uninterrupted live online content to the global user experience community. Since then we have introduced a leadership team consisting of representatives from every continent on our planet. And we kickstarted our podcast, 24 Minutes of UX, which puts different local experts into a conversation in every episode

Our event is created not by a central committee. Rather it is local and regional UX groups that bring and choose the content. Groups like yours. In 2021, you could bring your community’s local knowledge to a global audience. You get to pick your speaker. You get to moderate the session. You get the exposure. We bring the attendees.
You are running a UX community in your town, city, region, or country?
Our podcast series is the combination of an after-work discussion, a 1-on-1 chat, a global community platform, and a coaching session. Episodes always feature a Seeker of UX wisdom and a Giver of UX wisdom. They engage in a conversation about a specific UX topic, and we get to listen in and learn along.

2020 was not an easy year. But difficulties always have a silver lining. The world became one global stage, and we got to work with over 20 local communities to create an event reaching 7000 UX professionals. It was a true team effort, and we did it all in 40 days.
We stand for never-ending learning, continuous effort, and the humility to admit that the more we know as professionals, the more we realise how much more we could learn. Our content and effort mirror this belief through the 24-hour format, their recurring nature, or through involving both junior and senior UXers.
The word “glocal” was formed through combining ‘global’ and ‘local’. But for too long, this meant that centralized global approaches, beliefs and experience are pushed to local experts. We are turning this around. We stand for bringing local aspects, peculiarities and little-known facts to a global stage, by working with local experts.
