Understanding Limits from a Social-Ecological perspective
2015 (English)In: LIMITS 2015, © First Monday , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)Text
Latest developments in the field of HCI have provoked an increasing interest in issues pertaining to global warming, natural resource depletion and environmental degradation. Concern in such issues has contributed to give shape to the design space of Sustainable HCI; a space whose boundaries are at times blurred. On the one hand, there is a purpose to design information technology from visions of the world that do not really question limits to continuous economic growth and, on the other hand, there is an intention to think about the very purpose of computing in alternative ways of living. This paper introduces the perspective of social ecology as a way to think about information technology in a world where sustainable (qualitative) development might be possible. Opening us up to new ways of thinking in HCI will lead us to envision what role computing can play in the challenging years to come.
