Numérisation et crise environnementale

Talking Head with Gauthier Roussilhe

Back to summary

Almost twenty years ago, organisations as diverse as the WWF and the World Economic Forum in Davos were promoting digital technology as a solution to the climate crisis. A growing awareness of digital technology’s environmental impact has since tempered that optimism. In this talk, Gauthier Roussilhe, a researcher and consultant specialising in digitisation’s environmental challenges, takes stock of both digital technology’s positive and negative contributions. Trained as a designer, Roussilhe draws not only on scientific studies, but also on concrete expression in design of digital technology’s carbon footprint.
