When we go to a restaurant for a meal, we order from the menu which shows all the options and prices of dishes. In other words, we are well aware of the cost of our choices before we make them. But when it comes to invisible resources, we don’t know the cost of our actions until we receive the bill. How much does it cost for a shower? How much does the air conditioning at the lecture cost? We don’t usually have the answers to these questions, but through behaviour interventions, we try to bring these resources visible. This focus area will bring students’ attention to the consumption of resources, mainly water and energy, and reflect on the real-time impacts of their consumption behaviours.
