So how can digitalization contribute to the sustainable transformation of society and the economy? How can thinking about sustainability inspire the techie scene so that digitalization guarantees long-term civil rights and individual freedoms? How, for example, can electricity from renewable energies and intelligent grids be further developed with combined knowledge from both scenes? What role does sustainability play for stable tech communities? Which ecological opportunities do digital applications offer for climate and resource protection? What types of digitalization are opposed or even counterproductive to these goals? How can the digital society be democratic and just while peacefully preserving the basis of our lives on this planet?

Among these key questions, Bits & Bäume stands — as an open networking conference — for new perspectives on digitalization with sustainability! The conferece aim is to

  • bring different scenes, actors and organizations into discussion,
  • identify interfaces between sustainability issues and circumspect digitalization,
  • find visionary solutions and implement them with joint vehemence

„Bits & Bäume“ is intended to politicize and kick off common positions on sustainable digitalization and against anti-democratic trends.
