Abstract [en]

Focusing in the importance of the sustainability discourse in the field of design, this qualitative study reviews how Human-Computer Interaction designers have addressed sustainability issues in their written works. For this, a structured textual analysis was used in order to filter out the main ideas related to key elements when constructing formal conceptions of sustainable development. The results show which elements have been determinant in these discourses but also how influential are these for the actual outcomes in design. Finally, the discussion gathers around the possibilities to strengthen this discourse as well as opening new directions for Human-Computer Interaction design.
