Theme: Design for Sustainable Behaviour
Website: http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/cfp/tsuecfp.pdf
Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2013

The International Journal of Sustainable Engineering CALL FOR PAPERS Special Issue on: Design for Sustainable Behaviour. Designers shape the development of products, services and systems which directly impact upon society and the environment. The application of sustainable design can greatly reduce the environmental and social impacts of these products, services and systems. However, many impacts occur during use and often users struggle to make the link between their own behaviour and the environmental and social impact that result. Design for sustainable behaviour is an emerging area of research and practice which aims to reduce the environmental and social impacts of products, services and systems by moderating users interactions with them. This special issue aims to consolidate knowledge in, and extend the reach of this important field.

The subjects of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Strategies, Methods and Tools for changing user behaviour
Case studies of the application of Design for Sustainable Behaviour
Ethical implications of changing user behaviour
Evaluation methods for Design for Sustainable Behaviour
Design Process models for implementing Design for Sustainable Behaviour
Industry perspectives of Design for Sustainable Behaviour
