Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Talking about the digital quickly leads to excitement and hype. What we often forget is the broader picture with its negative externalities creating unknown effects. Some believe that technology itself could bring the solution, as one of the most dooming challenges of our time is around the environment. In this panel we would like to challenge our understanding of innovation and sustainability. We will try to understand the principles behind innovation and evaluate how such principles can contribute to building a system with regenerative characteristics. How might technology contribute to this process?
