Raising people's awareness with environmental data and educational information does not necessarily trigger sufficient motivation to change their habits towards a more environmentally friendly and sustainable lifestyle. This article reports on two workshops at Pervasive 2008 and UbiComp 2008 that sought to develop a better understanding how to go beyond just informing and into motivating and encouraging action and change. Drawing on participatory culture, ubiquitous computing, and real-time information, participants discussed research and development of viable new design approaches and information interfaces that can strengthen our position to meet the targets of the Kyoto protocol, and contribute to the sustainability of a low-carbon future.
