Sustainable web design, sustainable virtual design - Looking for commentary and collaborators

Hi, this is Pete Markiewicz, a web/interactive design instructor in Los Angeles.

I'm currently exploring the idea of ongoing conversion of physical design to virtual services. This is dematerialization - one of the features of sustainable design articulated by Nathan Shedroff in his great book "Design is the Problem: The Future of Design Must Be Sustainable".

The betacup design challenge for a sustainable community

It’s been said that design shapes behavior; and in user experience (UX) design, behavior informs design which shapes behavior. We can almost taste the tail of the snake in its own mouth.

"Good" (in the social/humanitarian/responsibility sense) Interaction Design

I am working on an event in San Francisco called "Forces for Good: Activism + Interaction"

This event will be in conjunction with Design Week SF and is centered around showcasing interaction/product/web/ work from folks who are using their design skills to convey a large socio-political message or to provoke positive social change.
We want to have a eveneing event and then follow up with a weekend workshop of a multi-disciplinary collaborative design-a-thon.

Some great examples I know of are:

designing for behavioral change for the purposes of sustainability

This site, "Design | Behaviour" (from the UK) seems really interesting.
They don't talk about IxD, but it really sounds like they are using core
facets of IxD theory and practice in the work being explored.

We had an event here in NYC where we looked at IxD and Sustainable Design a
few months ago and this work seems to be right on target with many of the
talking points in the conversation.

Here at Moto we are looking at this stuff

His this an Interaction Design issue?


I'm involved in a organisation of a meeting to promote a urban historic
centre renewal trough the participation of the highest number of actors that
use the respective space.

Due to my designer / architect profile and the interest about the issues of
interaction design in its more broad usages, I wold like to have a sense of
receptivity of the implementation of Interaction design work process in this
kind of initiatives.

At the end, if using the interaction design designation it's suitable, after
all we wish to give conditions for the citizens to design the interactions
of the use

The Designers Accord
>From our brothers and sisters in the IDSA there seems to be more
movement in and around sustainability and understanding issues of
environmental impact then I have seen discussed within our community.
I think the outlines of this accord are quite good.
