June Insights Series: Tech for Sustainability

Thursday, June 30, 2022 (8:00 AM - 10:30 AM) (MDT)

Description

Tech for Sustainability 

Technology proves to be a paradox when it comes to sustainability. As our world becomes more digital, the amount of energy consumed by technology continues to grow. And yet, the tech industry, known for its innovative problem solving, has also provided many tools to help society be a better steward of the environment.  

How can the tech industry become more sustainable? And, how can we continue to use technology to become more sustainable as a society? 

Join us for a discussion of the ways that technology has already contributed to a sustainable future, the responsibility tech has to become more eco-friendly and what’s next for sustainability and tech.
