Abstract: Social experimentation could be useful for testing the feasibility and effectiveness of technologies and policies in achieving more sustainable social systems. However, classical social experiments are costly and can only be applied in a limited range of situations due to the requirement for randomized assignment of subjects to experimental and control groups. Here, we reconsider the role of social experimentation within the framework of the feasibility of technology and policy interventions for creating societies that are more sustainable, particularly in regard to mitigation of CO2 emissions and aging populations. From a review of more than 100 social experiments from the literature, we develop a knowledge schema and knowledge base system for structuring and managing the valuable knowledge that has been produced under the scientific theme of social experimentation. The knowledge base contains classical randomized social experiments, but it also includes studies that are less rigorou s from the point of view of random assignment. (More)
