Welcome to the website of the Sustainable HCI in the UK workshop, a British HCI 2015 (13-17 July 2015) workshop to take place in Lincoln, UK.

Sustainable HCI seeks to address global and local challenges of social, economic, and environmental health and sustainability in HCI. While an international Sustainable HCI community already exists, this workshop will establish a UK community as a platform for the ongoing global presence and visibility of UK Sustainable HCI. Ultimately, we aim to hold an annual themed workshop at BritishHCI, as well as HCI workshops in related disciplines (e.g. geography, sociology). As a first step, however, this workshop will bring together Sustainable HCI researchers to map the existing landscape of UK research in this domain, and to highlight challenges that cut across social, economic, and environmental sustainability. This mapping will form the basis of a UK research network to collaborate and share experiences of sustainable HCI research across the range of domains that fall under this umbrella.

This workshop has three goals:

  • Establish a UK network of Sustainable HCI researchers;
  • Map the landscape of UK Sustainable HCI, emphasising the UK as a specific research domain, to identify challenges and opportunities for future research,
  • Create the foundation for a long-term community presence in Sustainable HCI at the national and international level.
