Technology, environmental justice and sustainability
The APC network is organising this virtual discussion on 29 November to explore how community-led development and deployment of digital technologies around the world are shaping paths towards digital transformation that are socially, economically and environmentally just and sustainable.
Our use of technology can often separate us from the reality of environmental degradation. This session identified threats and opportunities for digital technologies to work for local communities and environmental justice.
Climate change and digital society are the two trends that will underpin global development in our time. They interact much more than is being understood or discussed at conferences like COP and IGF.
APC will engage in five days of multistakeholder dialogue on how technology can support democracy and human rights, through leading two sessions and sharing remarks during the opening and closing plenaries of the event.
APC’s collective action and activism contribute to environmental justice and preservation of the earth, and mitigate the negative environmental impacts of the internet, digital technologies and the digital economy.
This publication tells a story of collective adaptation and resilience, closeness and collaboration, care and connections, of a growing community navigating change.
This guide aims to show you how to think and act collectively to change direction towards a regenerative and redistributive economy respecting both human and ecological rights and limits. It describes the concepts and processes of circularity and summarises key challenges and opportunities.
This episode of the podcast "the fire these times", hosted by Lebanese writer Joey Ayoub, explores the danger of assuming that technology can usher in solutions to the climate crisis, as digitalisation comes with its own problems, such as the ecological costs of producing tech products.
The first modules of a step-by-step guide that explains the negative impact of digital devices on both people and the planet and how a circular approach to the production, use and disposal of digital devices offers a solution will be launched on 4 October.
How are APC members improving their communities’ lives with the support of APC subgranting? With the global health crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacting vulnerable communities, VOICE works on the ground to deliver critical communications and local support.
