Digital sobriety

For Man, the ecological transition is probably the biggest challenge of the 21st century. And while our way of life is increasingly irrigated by digital technology, one question arises in particular: how can digital be used to accompany this transition? It is digital sobriety, precisely, that seeks to achieve convergence between these two trends, to prevent the technological revolution from adding further to our environmental footprint. This course focuses on the impact that digital technology is having on the planet, and the actions that everyone – both individuals and organizations – can take to reduce it.
