What is digital sustainability
Digital is increasingly the engine of development. If we want to live in a better world, development must be increasingly sustainable. Digital Sustainability concerns the interactions of digitization and digital transformation with respect to environmental, economic and social sustainability. Using digital in a sustainable way and using it for sustainability is the way to build a better future.
An award for sustainability talents
We decided to establish this award because we believe that the diffusion of a culture of Digital Sustainability must start from school and that students can be the first and most important ambassadors of this message.
