The future of design for sustainable behaviour revisited

At the 2009 Ecodesign conference the results of a survey on the future of Design for Sustainable Behavior (DfSB) was presented. In this paper, the survey is revisited, and responses from both surveys are compared and discussed. The contribution of theoretical fields, research priorities, integration in business, and the location and position of DfSB are discussed. The current discourse on behavior versus practice oriented research is addressed, and the paper concludes with thoughts on how DfSB may further mature as research area.
