“CODES Side Event at the Sixth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-6).
The side event discussed five central action areas that help to make a sustainable digital age a reality: the strategic use of global environmental data, the building blocks of sustainable digital infrastructure, the use of sustainable AI for the SDGs, the critical role of digital sustainability literacy and how ‘digital public infrastructures (DPI)’ can support climate and environmental protection. The side event was open to civil society, researchers, tech innovators and Government representatives. The side event was followed by an informal online meet-up for updates on the Global Digital Compact consultation process as well as opportunities for community networking and strategic discussions with a dedicated community.
