Sustainability has never been more critical for DIS researchers. Within the DIS and HCI community, the term has multiple meanings: In sustainable HCI, it frequently refers to ecologically sustainable lifestyles through the design of interactive systems and to sustainability in HCI practice itself. Conversely, community-based HCI speaks of the sustainability of HCI, referring to the longevity of our socio-technical interventions. This workshop seeks to bring together these seemingly different conceptions of sustainability to explore their commonalities. Arguably, longevity is important for sustainable HCI, as is ecological impact for community-based HCI. We invite participants from diverse fields, such as sustainable HCI, HCI4D, Community-Based Participatory Design, and Digital Civics to reflect on past and current work, develop best practice recommendations, and design sustainability roadmaps to help researchers and designers to conceive, run, and evaluate future projects with sustainability through, in, and of HCI in mind.
