Open sustainability: supporting citizen co-creation for sustainability
2011 (English)In: ANZMAC 2011 Conference Proceedings, Perth: Edith Cowan University , 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
This short paper illustrates how open source and the philosophy behind it can be used to enhance sustainable behaviour. Open source development has been very prominent and successful in the software industry bringing different people together to work for a common cause with ego gratifications and future career prospects being some of the micro level incentives for participating. Taking the incentives from open source and trying to apply this to sustainability issues in a community is proposed as a solution for increasing citizen participation while creating solutions for sustainable society and living.
