A Sustainable Digital Future Depends on Dialogue and Collaboration
“Our vision: We co-create and synthesize a vision for a positive, sustainable digital future through debate and dialogue.”
The world has reached a critical point: Technology is developing faster than ever before, resulting in a constant saturation of new digital products and services. And, with this rapid development, it’s imperative that we ask the important questions, and consciously co-create our future:
- Who should decide which products and services markets and communities need? Should these decisions be in the hands of big tech?
- Are we on the right path for a sustainable Digital Economy?
- The rapid increase in new digital products and services relies on the growth of digital infrastructure. In turn, this increases the sector’s consumption of scarce resources. What does this mean for sustainability?
- And if this is not the future we want, what’s the alternative? What does a positive digital world look like?
This is where the SDIA can add value: by facilitating dialogue to create a vision of a sustainable digital future.
The SDIA’s community to date has already translated the debate around a sustainable digital infrastructure into knowledge and policy recommendations. Now, Max stated, is the right time to take this experience and formulate a new roadmap for a sustainable digital economy.
This will require honest conversations, bringing in voices from across the value chain. The SDIA community has the independence, values, and experience to achieve this.
