How can the internet of things (IoT) be used to promote environmental justice? On Thursday, 21 September, APC will dedicate its monthly #EcoThursday initiative to exchanges around this issue through our social media and platforms.
This introductory brief produced by APC seeks to provide civil society organisations with an initial understanding of the strategic relevance of engaging in the UN-led Global Digital Compact process by developing inputs based on a long-term vision for what we want the internet to be.
At this year's Privacy Camp, APC and The Engine Room hosted a session reflecting on some of the false climate solutions that digital rights advocates should be aware of amid efforts to act in solidarity with environmental defenders and climate justice movements.
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. Check out our achievements in this area in 2021.
Conversations about digital and environmental justice are not happening together in the way that is needed. In an effort to try and fill this gap, the Just Net Coalition, with APC and CETRI, organised a two-day event on October 2021 that brought together activists, experts and officials from the environmental, social and digital justice movements.
Our 2021 Annual Report tells a story made by many stories taking place in the most diverse scenarios but connected through purpose. Here you will find a chronicle of how the APC community lived, worked and thrived through a turbulent but fruitful year.
A new research project explores how digital rights and climate and environmental justice intersect. It presents a landscape analysis and seven issue briefs, including four briefs from the APC network that point to collaboration between digital rights organisations and environmental justice actors, and areas of immediate impact and intervention for donors.
These issue briefs highlight potential priority areas for funding that would bring the work of digital rights organisations and environmental justice actors closer together, based on the need for the two groups to work more collaboratively given the global environmental and climate emergency.
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.
