YOUthDIG 2022, main programme

Session teaser

Climate change is no longer a prospect but a daunting reality. Our generation and the generations to come are the ones most likely to suffer its negative effects, and at the same time are the ones most concerned with preventing the “point of no return” from being reached. Concrete solutions are urgently needed. Against this backdrop, this session will shed a light on how digitalization can both affect climate change and be the key driver for environmental sustainability.


This session is inspired by a classical cineclub. At the beginning of the session it will be shown a short documentary which will kickstart the conversation with the experts. The participants will have the chance to explore this new IG area, raise questions, formulate comments and brainstorm solutions.
