Transform Your Kids Into Self Sustainable Power Plants: Teaching Sustainable Behaviour to Young Users

Abstract [en]

There is a gap between people's attitudes and feelings toward sustainability, the environment, and their own contribution. Attitudes and knowledge can predict environmental behaviour and it is essential to establish positive habits for children to secure a more environmentally-friendly future. To minimize the gap between attitude, knowledge and actual contribution, it is important that environmental education starts early on. The Kidnetic is a rechargeable power bank that functions with kinetic energy in order to increase a child's abilities to conceptualize the production of sustainable energy. This portable device allows children to move, play, and run - creating a system of self- sufficiency to power their own mobile devices. The design is aimed to enhance children's curiosity and engagement in environmental conservation and awareness. Kidnetic argues for the importance of forging a deeper connection between a mechanism and the user by showing how a design is capable of spreading awareness for energy consumption and changing children's behaviour toward a sustainable lifestyle.
