This paper reviews the current state of Design for Sustainable Behaviour, and concludes that so far, the body of literature mostly presents, explains and structures possible design strategies, proposes design solutions based on these strategies, and presents case studies that evaluate the acceptance and effectiveness of such designs. In order to advance the field, three main research challenges have been identified. These are establishing a common terminology, more formalized research protocols for user centred research to better inform design solutions, and selecting target behaviours
