Gameful self-reflection: on HCI and the sustainability discourses
Venue: CHItaly 2021, 11-13 July 2021 Bozen-Bolzano (Italy) and online


It could be said that sustainability has always been at the center of HCI as a field; the core tenets of HCI, usability and participation are both concerned with securing and maintaining continued, meaningful engagement between customers and publics with the products and services we design. Meanwhile, the concept of sustainability has taken on a more broad ecological meaning, and although a range of HCI academic and industry professionals are focussed on topics such as urban design, circular economy and citizen science that directly address human impacts and environmentally-sensitive quality of life there is much more to this discourse.

This workshop invites each and every participant to self-reflect on their previous work, their current directions, and future aims, and ask just how much, or how little our own work, and that of our HCI community is addressing sustainability and sustainable development.

This workshop includes the following TOPICS:

● Our personal perspectives on HCI and its global reach

● Sustainable Development Goals

● Critical self-reflection

● Experimental Workshop in an Online Virtual World


1- Previously published works

2- Ongoing investigation

3- Future research plan


May 20, 2021 – Submission deadline (extended)
July 11-12, 2021 – Workshops
(Deadlines are meant till 11.59 pm CET)
