Dear all

Following on from Minda's updates below a reminder to anyone attending
the EuroDIG in Den Haag today, for day 2, that our Flash Panel (Flash
13) on climate change and emerging technologies takes place at 4pm. In
the Everest room (Aptly named!)

Details via the Wiki at https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Flash_13_2019

We have Minda Moreira, Hanane Boujemi, Tatiana Tropina, Michael Oghia,
and participants from other stakeholder groups participating.

30 minutes, open mic so bring your strong opinion and good arguments
with you.

We will consider the environmental impact and emerging issues around
sustainability over the lifeline of our digital-networked devices (from
mineral mines in the Congo, to assembly plants in China) and data-centre
and operating hubs that we need to connect  that heat up the planet from
Finland, through to Singapore, via major internet exchanges in Europe. 

The last section will address "what is to be done" in the spirit of the
School Strikes movement that demand policy and business commitments to
sustainable energy supply (without electricity, no internet, no social
media, no phones), human rights based manufacturing and mining labour
practices (this is a major issue that remains unaddressed from a global
perspective), and rights-respecting forms of digitalization of services
in our cities, institutions, and homes.

Be there or somewhere else

best wishes
