My final solution is a resource that designers and other stakeholders can use when creating communication materials for environmental issues. The Designer’s Roadmap is a book that compiles research from my own studies and from existing literature in other fields, such as environmental psychology, decision sciences, and persuasive technology.
The book includes observations and practical tips people can put into practice throughout the design process, as well as a set of ethical principles that should be followed when designing for behavior change. My hope is that it will help designers use communication to empower individuals with knowledge, encouraging them to begin and sustain a journey toward positive behavior change.
