There has been a burgeoning interest in using technology to deliver
interventions to change behavior ever since Fogg’s (2002) pioneering work
on persuasive technology.  Recently, Oinas-Kukkonen introduced the concept
of behavior change support system (BCSS), a web- or mobile- based
information system for influencing user behavior. Here, smartphones as a
medium of intervention are particularly noteworthy and promising.  With
their widespread adoption and pervasive use in society, Smartphones can be
leveraged to deliver large-scale and cost-effective behavior-change
interventions.  Moreover, in recent years, Fogg’s framework has also been
applied to the topic of environmental sustainability, giving rise to the
new field of “sustainable HCI” and “persuasive sustainability”.  A broad
range of environmental sustainability issues is being addressed by the
field, such as energy consumption, water and fuel use, indoor air quality,
and transportation/mobility.

In this talk, we present various examples of sustainable mobility behavior
change support systems that encourage a voluntary shift to more sustainable
transport modes.  We also discuss on-going efforts to develop a mobility
behavior change support system in Manila, based on established theories of
behavior change.

*About the Speaker*

Varsolo Sunio is currently a PhD student at the Intelligent Transport
Systems Laboratory of Kyoto University.  His area of research includes the
practical application of social information and behavior change support
systems to sustainable mobility.  He holds masters degrees in Physics from
the University of the Philippines and Industrial and Systems Engineering
from the National University of Singapore.  He graduated from the Ateneo de
Manila University, with bachelor degrees in physics and computer
engineering, summa cum laude.
