Virtual Conference on Ecologically-Sustainable Digitalisation in an International Context

Digitalisation and increased appreciation of the need to move towards a more
sustainable development within our planetary boundaries are the two main
drivers of the comprehensive transformations which economies and societies
worldwide will undergo in the decades ahead and are, in part, already undergoing.

Each driver needs to make use of the dynamics triggered by the other.
However, too often, challenges and opportunities linked to digitalisation and
sustainable development are discussed within separate communities or in
national forums that neglect the globalised context (including the United
Nations’ 2030 Agenda) in which they occur.

The aim of this conference is to complement ongoing discourses on the
interlinkages between digitalisation and the ecological dimension of sustainable
development from an international perspective. To this end, the event brings
together experts and scientists, entrepreneurs, civil society representatives
and policy makers from both communities and from across the world for an
exchange of views and practical experiences on the following questions:

• What concrete measures are needed to ensure the ecological sustainability
of digitalisation?
• How can digitalisation enable and support the transformation towards more
sustainable development?
• How can we learn from each other and cooperate on an international and
bilateral level in order to create favorable framework conditions and promote
promising initiatives for sustainable digitalisation?

The conference is jointly hosted by Öko-Institut e.V. and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
