About the event
Did you know: 🔹That digital technologies emit more greenhouse gases than the world’s fleet of trucks? 🔹It takes 800kg of raw materials to manufacture a 2kg computer?
The Digital Collage is a fun and collaborative workshop with a similar educational method as the Climate Fresk. The workshop aims to lay down the key solutions to build a more sustainable digital sector. It then encourages participants to discuss the topic for fruitful debate. This workshop is a real team-building tool, allowing participants to come together and discover how to achieve sustainability in the digital sector.
-- HOW DOES THE GAME WORK? ☀️--
This 3-hours workshop calls on participants' collective intelligence and creativity to identify the cause-effect relationship between the different components of the digital's carbon footprint.
As a team, you aim to arrange adequately the cards of the game, thus revealing the Digital Collage. Cooperation will get you from one deck of cards to the next!
A facilitator will guide you during the workshop, to ensure good communication between the members of the group and to give additional explanations.
