Pervasive Persuasive Technology and Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability and climate change are issues which must no longer be ignored by anyone, any industry or any academic community. The pervasive technology, ubiquitous computing and HCI community is slowly waking up to these global concerns. The key theme of this workshop around environmental sustainability will be addressed threefold: (1) How to go beyond just informing and into motivating and encouraging action and change. (2) Pervasiveness can easily turn invasive. We want to start re-considering the impact of pervasive technology from an ecological perspective. (3) Digital divide between humans and the environment: Can the process of ‘blogging sensor data’ assist us in becoming more aware of the needs of nature? How can we avoid the downsides?
