Abstract

The environment of our planet suffers from the irresponsible use of the world's natural resources. Regardless the development state of all countries, they still encounter littering behaviour and environmental pollution to some extent. The lack of research regarding the use of augmented reality (AR) to promote behavioural change in Australia drove the attention to this research; specifically address the promotion of anti-littering behaviour. This research will use qualitative and quantitative methodologies and will apply comparative analysis to draw comparisons between the traditional methods for raising the community environmental awareness and the use of augmented reality for similar task. Expected outcomes are personality differences in the use of AR and environmental behaviours and a framework for the environmental behaviour change.
