APC's participation at RightsCon will focus on due diligence, environmental and human rights impact assessments in the tech sector, integration of gender perspectives into cyber policies, contributing to the Global Digital Compact process and financing mechanisms for community-owned networks.
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.
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.
At the second Video for Change Environmental Impact Lab, EngageMedia worked with six film projects contributing to environmental justice in the Asia-Pacific region. This time, the focus was on maximising the participating films’ potential for creating impact in their communities.
