I am thrilled to announce that Sustainability in the Digital Age (SDA) is now launching as an international research for action partnership with Future Earth, Mila – Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute, the International Science Council (ISC) and the German Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt or UBA).
Humanity today is interconnected through, and dependent on, both the digital and natural worlds.
As a result, tackling the climate crisis and the broader sustainability agenda, and working toward a just equitable digital future are increasingly intertwined agendas. Sustainability in the Digital Age works to leverage the opportunities of this intersection to drive the transformative systems changes needed to build a sustainable, climate-safe, and equitable world.
Sustainability in the Digital Age works to leverage the digital age to drive societal transformations toward a more sustainable and equitable world.
We do this through work in four areas:
Research & Innovation
We facilitate research and innovation to unleash, scale, and steer digital disruptions to governance, economic and cognitive systems to drive transformations to a sustainable and equitable world.
Training & Networks
Through training and convenings, we work to build networks of innovators, researchers, and practitioners who are bilingual in both digital and sustainability domains.
Policy, Standards & Best Practices
We develop and promote strategies and policies that advance the enabling conditions for leveraging the digital age to drive societal transformations to a more sustainable and equitable world.
Collective Foresight & Intelligence
We leverage digital technology to enable broad insights and foresights into the complex and rapidly changing global challenges and opportunities of our times.
