Abstract

In this chapter, we draw on social practice theory framings of energy use (and other resource consumption that leads to the emission of harmful greenhouse gases) to develop some assertions for what such theoretical underpinnings mean for the business of doing design for sustainability. We conclude that we need effective ways for doing transdisciplinary research and design; we need ways of working at broader temporal scales that account for historical and future trajectories of practice in design; and we propose a framework of social practice theory and design fiction as a promising approach to augment existing practice-oriented design.
