After four years, the 2nd international “Bits & Bäume” conference on digitalization and sustainability takes place from 30 September to 2 October 2022 at the TU Berlin. Just in time, we are pleased to announce the launch of the report Digital Reset. Redirecting Technologies for the Deep Sustainability Transformation. The report is the outcome of the project ‘Digitalization for Sustainability – Science in Dialogue’ (D4S), a two-year scientific dialogue amongst 15 European experts. The report calls for a redirection of digitalization and shows how the governance of digital technologies can be reshaped to contribute to ambitious goals for social and environmental sustainability.
We cordially invite you the launch event to learn more about and discuss the main findings of the report. The registration is now open: https://digitalization-for-sustainability.com/reportlaunch
About the report:
Time seems out of joint. The world society has experienced a centennial pandemic, the global thermometer has displayed a sequence of hottest years on record, and Russia’s war on Ukraine has shattered political order. Unsurprisingly, the economy is severely affected.
Governments worldwide hope that digital technologies can provide key solutions. Yet, we argue, digitalization, in its current and mainstream form, is rather aggravating than solving many of the problems at hand. What is needed instead is a deep sustainability transformation that fundamentally reorganizes the economy and all its sectors.
Our report shows how digitalization can support the quest for such a deep sustainability transformation. It dives into the sectors agriculture, mobility, energy, consumption, industry and buildings and presents specific policies that can redress the risks and support the opportunities of digital technologies for the transformation. Moreover, the report provides a blueprint for the European Union on how to reconceptualize governance of digital services, data, artificial intelligence as well as business models so that digitalization contributes to achieving carbon neutrality, resource autonomy and economic resilience.
