This paper presents empirical evidence that design for political activism that goes beyond the individual user is crucial for sustainable HCI. The analysis of a series of qualitative interviews conducted during a field trial evaluating a persuasive technology for transport behaviour resulted in 20 factors that influence such behaviour. Factors were ordered and grouped by the potential of a person to influence a factor individually. Concluding, four approaches for HCI, namely, entertainment, education, community support, and political activism are identified that can together address the full continuum of influence factors.
