Abstract

This paper presents EcoIsland, which is a system persuading individuals and families to change their lifestyle patterns to reduce CO 2 emissions. EcoIsland visualizes the user's current eco-friendly behavior as an island shared by his/her family members. Several persuasive techniques developed in behaviorism, social psychology, and economy are used to offer incentives to him/her to encourage eco-friendly behavior. We examine and compare the implementation and effectiveness of different types of persuasive techniques in several user studies.
