Thinking differently about digital sustainability (was Dale Vince)

By Green Tech South West


Unfortunately our planned speaker Dale Vince has had to cancel at short notice.

We're still going ahead with an event on this date and Hannah Smith, one of our co-organisers, will be giving a talk she recently delivered at UX London instead of Dale. Her talk was very well received at UX London and is called "Thinking differently about digital sustainability".

How you choose to join in is up to you! Join us either in-person or online!
  • In person at the Engine Shed, Bristol for pizza, drinks and a spot of mingling before the talks. Arrive at the Engine Shed from 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
  • Or attend online and enjoy a welcoming and authentic Green Tech South West experience using CrowdCast. Join online from 6.20pm for a 6.30pm start.
Both sessions close at 8pm. For those in person we'll move to a nearby pub for more networking.

If you would like to attend in-person please secure your free ticket here:

If you are watching online, you're already in the right place!

Thinking differently about digital sustainabilty

Digital is often regarded as green or sustainable by default. But itโ€™s not. The truth is that whilst digital is usually much less impactful than offering a real-life alternative, it is not without significant downsides.

In this talk, we'll discuss how digital isn't sustainable and what mindset shifts we need to get to a sustainable, fossil-free tech industry.
