Summary
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research into sustainability has been a hot topic for around 10 years. During this time notions of an Anthropocene have propagated throughout research communities - centralizing humankindís agency in environmental degradation. Many CHI and other workshops have wrestled with the complexities, paradoxes and politics of this often-contentious field of enquiry. However, HCI is also a solution-focused field, so this workshop seeks to understand ways that HCI can be Ďre-madeí a sustainable practice and perspective. Recent workshops have called for the sustainable HCI community to draw on insights from fields outside of traditional HCI to move the research forward. Thus, this workshop looks to the solution-focused design practice and philosophy of Permaculture as an approach to addressing sustainability - focusing on its design principles and ethics. Patrick Whitefield defines Permaculture as ď a design system for human habitats which work with nature rather than against it. It is modeled on natural systems, and makes use of both traditional and modern science.Ē

This workshop invites the submission of position papers, and the presentation of (10 min max) position statements. Each position paper should be submitted to Callum Egan ([log in to unmask]) as a single PDF file, not longer than two pages in length, and containing a description of one of the following:


∑       a sustainable HCI design future, or

∑       how HCI research can help achieve sustainability, or

∑       un-sustainable HCI practices

Mike Hazas is a senior lecturer in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. His research is concerned with everyday practices and technologies, and how they can be related to sustainability. These include practices like playing, working or doing the laundry, and their connection to energy demand and wider impacts such as greenhouse gas emissions. He applies multidisciplinary observational approaches, which juxtapose quantitative measures of demand and impact, and qualitative/quantitative data from everyday life (e.g. room occupancy, appliance times-of-use, routines of practice, and social meanings and expectations). Specific empirical sites have included cooking, thermal comfort and digital media and entertainment. With Lisa Nathan, Mike is co-editing an upcoming Routledge volume entitled Digital Technology and Sustainability, which seeks to advance prevalent debates in sustainable HCI.

Graham Bell lives and works in the Scottish Borders. With his wife he has created the oldest intentional food forest garden in the UK Ė Garden Cottage. He has written two books on Permaculture, the Permaculture Way and the Permaculture Garden - introductions to what Permaculture means in a Northern temperate climate and the society that goes with it. He has taught Permaculture on four continents. After many years engaging with business and politicians in his work to get these essential permaculture principles understood and used by people who govern and direct the world's economies he has returned to teaching courses and restarted a North Hardy Plant Nursery specifically designed to support Forest Gardeners.
