New special issue on Sustainability in the Digital Age published in the IEEE Technology & Society Magazine
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.
