Sustainable air travel, behaviour change and social media

We are organizing a one day workshop here in Lincoln on 18th May 2011 on behalf of the EPSRC Airport Energy Technologies Network (PI, Prof Paul Stewart in the new Engineering School here at Lincoln) – everyone with an interest in the topic of behavior change and air travelĀ is welcome to attend.

This workshop aims to summarise the state-of-the-art in using OSNs and social media to facilitate behaviour change and will explore the potential of using such technology to deliver sustainable behaviour change in the context of the air-travel industry. The seminar will reveal research already in progress aimed at using OSNs to deliver behaviour change interventions in both domestic and organisational settings and explore issues pertinent to the air-travel industry such as transport to and from airports, passenger attitudes to air travel, airlines and destinations, public attitudes to air freight and sustainable food consumption, energy usage in airports and international and multi-cultural agendas.
Speakers include friends of LiSC such as Mark Blythe from Northumbria, Charlie Musselwhite from UWE and Parisa Eslambolchilar from Swansea. see flyer here for more details or contact Shaun.
