HCI and UN's sustainable development goals: Responsibilities, barriers and opportunities
2016 (English)In: NordiCHI '16: Proceedings of the 9th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2016, 140Conference paper (Refereed)
Despite increasing interest, Sustainable HCI has been critiqued for doing too little, and perhaps also at times for doing the wrong things. Still, a field like Human-Computer Interaction should aim at being part of transforming our society into a more sustainable one. But how do we do that, and, what are we aiming for? With this workshop, we propose that HCI should start working with the new global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that were formally adopted by the UN in September 2015. How can Sustainable HCI be inspired by, and contribute to these goals? What should we in the field of HCI do more of, and what should we perhaps do less of? In what areas should we form partnerships in order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and with whom should we partner?
