Carbon.to: improving the understanding of carbon dioxide information
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Informatics for Environmental Protection., Shaker Verlag, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
We are nowadays increasingly presented with information about greenhouse gases in our everyday life. However thereseems to be a gap between this increase in the exposure to carbon dioxide information and the understanding of how tointerpret it, making behavioral change difficult. This article presents examples of how different applications have dealtwith this problem by representing the carbon dioxide information in different ways. Based on the existing examples, anapplication called carbon.to was developed and released. This service tries to improve the understanding of carbon dioxideinformation by simulation in a playful way. Feedback from the users points towards that the gap in understandingexisted and that carbon.to was successful in helping closing it.
