These aretechnologies that are human centred, environmentally sustainable and socially desirable.Design/methodology/approach – The paper’s approach is based on a qualitative discourse thatjustifies the introduction of Slow Tech as a new design paradigm.Findings – The limits of the human body, and the need to take into account human wellbeing, thelimits of the planet and stakeholders’ interests in decision making, all suggest the need for a newparadigm, Slow Tech, in the design of ICT and ICT systems. Three scenarios are described as casestudies.
