Future lifestyles and opportunities for the ICT sector
Imagine you lived a sustainable life this weekend, what would it be like? What role would ICT play in reducing your ecological footprint? And in what ways would ICT solutions support you in “one planet living”- living and working within a fair share of the earth’s resources? Finding answers to these questions and co-creating sustainable futures enabled by ICT was the aim of a workstudio organised by GeSI and the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP) on 8 May 2012 in Berlin. Entitled “Future lifestyles and opportunities for the ICT industry- Envisioning pathways towards sustainable living in the year 2050”, the event brought together over fifty experts from the sustainability field, ICT sector and beyond to discuss how innovative technology can enable sustainable lifestyles in areas such as housing, health, mobility, communication and education. The GeSI and CSCP summary report sets out the key conclusions of the workstudio.
