Internet’s Footprint Dilemmas

Climate Garden meets Technologia Incognita: Internet’s Footprint Dilemmas

In cooperation between KasKantine and RIPE Community, hosted by a hackerspace in (h)ACTA, we will explore questions of:

  • digital development’s impact on the planet: how much pollution, extraction and consumption is possible within planetary limits;
  • carbon footprint, water/energy/minerals consumption, e-waste
  • what benefits of digitalisation are justified - compared to older, more traditional ways of communication.
  • possible (partial) solutions such as low-tech, reduce/reuse/recycle practices, policies within Internet Governance, and political actions.
