Description

Digital is a 7th continent in terms of environmental impact. It already represents 40% of a European's sustainable GHG (greenhouse gas) budget. For the planet as well as for our overloaded brains, it is urgent to find a peaceful relationship with this tool. Especially as we will have to save this non-renewable resource, as there are only 30 years of digital technology left before us. How can we transform these constraints into a formidable opportunity for innovation? We will address topics such as environmental impacts and their structure, good practices to be implemented at home and at work, ecodesign of digital services, and the meeting of low and high tech.
