*CFP: Targeting Environmental Challenges Using Interactive Visual 
**A special issue of Sustainability Journal**
**Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021**

Environmental concerns have now become global challenges faced by the 
entire world. Human-centered technologies, tools, and services are, 
therefore, urgently needed to assist people in dealing with these 
challenges. Interactive visual technologies can play an important role 
in helping users to become better aware of environmental issues and 
challenges, and understand their causes, as well as their socio-economic 
impacts. As a consequence, users can then take environmentally-conscious 
and appropriate actions, such as conserving energy, consuming natural 
resources more efficiently, dealing with sustainability-related 
concerns, and so on. Interactive visual technologies can also, in 
particular, address human behavior and support changes in negative 
behavior, which can then result in better achieving environmental user 
goals. Furthermore, such technologies can be used to create a bridge 
between environmental sciences and other disciplines, including many 
life sciences, economics, and sociology.

This Special Issue focuses on the role of interactive visual 
technologies in targeting current and future environmental challenges. 
The emphasis is on the interactive and visual aspects of such 
technologies, which might be software applications, tools, 
visualizations, educational games, gamification, and other digital 
services in the private, public, or industrial sectors. The topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to, the design, development, 
deployment, and evaluation of interactive visual technologies for:

- Monitoring and visualization of different kinds of environmental and 
user data;

- Monitoring and detection of human behavior and activity patterns 
impacting environmental factors, both on the small-scale, individual 
level and on the large-scale, population level;

- Facilitating exploration, interpretation, comparison, explanation, and 
simulation modeling using different kinds of environmental and user data;

- Creating awareness, influencing choices, and encouraging 
environmentally conscious human behavior changes;

- Utilizing different kinds of environmental data to support related 
applications in other areas, such as education, policy-making, public 
health, and well-being.
