Harmonizing Digital and Environmental Transitions?

Conscious Talk

This event is organized in collaboration with ID2Green (CAP Innove) and is free of charge thanks to the support of FEDER.

The intersection of digital innovation and environmental sustainability sparks lively debates and varying viewpoints. While digital technologies promise efficiency and economic growth, they also raise concerns about energy consumption and ecological impact.

In this Conscious Talk, we delve into the heart of this duality, offering an exploration from two complementary angles.

Firstly, we’ll examine the interactions between digital technology and the environment from an expert viewpoint. What’s the reality of digital energy consumption? What are the tangible impacts on natural resources and greenhouse gas emissions? How is knowledge structured around these issues, and what recent advancements have been made? 

Secondly, we’ll address the political dimension of this cohabitation. How can we align digital and environmental transitions with the societal visions we aspire to achieve? What policies and measures can be implemented to foster a just and sustainable transition? 

Join us on May 21st to explore the challenges, opportunities, and necessary compromises to create a future where digital progress aligns with environmental preservation.
