How do we shape and grow green data centres and digital infrastructures?
Greens/EFA’s roundtable. Register here
Digital and new technologies could be the key for the European Union to become climate neutral by 2050. Now, it’s Europe’s job to make sure that the green and digital transformation go hand-in-hand and do not work against each other.
The European Commission has pledged to push forward innovation and digitalisation at the same time as reaching climate neutrality. “Green” and “digital” are linchpins for Europe’s sustainable recovery from the Covid-19 crisis. The green and the digital transition are now high on the European Parliament’s agenda.
In a series of roundtable discussions, we’re inviting experts, representatives of NGOs and citizens to discuss questions at the heart of building a green and digital society: how can we use IT to benefit society? How can we advance research and accelerate our climate transition? How can we make sure digitalisation doesn’t hinder our environmental goals.
After the roundtables, we’ll use your ideas to draft a digital green manifesto, including policy recommendations for how the European Union can increase the use of digital tech and reduce its ecological footprint.
Join us for the third and last roundtable: “How do we shape and grow green data centres and digital infrastructures?
