Can you create ecologically responsible behaviour by design? Many products today try to persuade and enable people to act in an ecologically resonsible way. Using concepts of the persuasive design theory, these products are eamples of how designers can use their craft for the good. Still, there are challenges to master in order to change behaviour; and there is little experience on how sucessfull such products are in the long term. This talk will give an overview of the background theory, evaluate product examples and discuss upcoming topics that are in need of people-centric design the most.
