HAINES, V.J.A., MITCHELL, V. and ROSS, T., 2015. User centred design as an enabler of sustainable HCI. British HCI 2015, 13th-17th July 2015, Lincoln, UK.
This position paper presents a number of challenges and opportunities for sustainable HCI that have emerged from research conducted by the authors within domestic energy demand reduction and sustainable transport over a period of 15 years. It is argued that the complexity of sustainability problems requires HCI design to be situated within a wider User Centred Design (UCD) approach that supports holistic consideration of user experiences and collaboration across disciplines beyond the traditional scope of HCI.
