November 13 2019, Ching Hung will defend his PhD dissertation “Design for Green: ethics and politics for behavior-steering technology”. In his dissertation, he examines the limits of liberalism to deal with environmental problems. By means of an original and unorthodox combination of insights from the work of Skinner and of Popper, combined with a detailed analysis of the structure of human-technology relations, Ching Hung arrives at interesting and innovative proposals to design our material world in a new, green way.
