Digital technology facing environmental and societal disaster


Humanity today faces unprecedented and closely intertwined challenges. We now hear daily about environmental, financial, debt, economic, monetary, political, democratic, social, refugee, geopolitical, etc. "crises". How to understand and interpret this accumulation of difficulties?
Are they temporary or are they due to deeper phenomena such as the collapse of society?
Faced with these challenges, many players are increasingly promoting digital technology and technological solutions. But what are the real effects of digital technology on the environment and society? More specifically, what are the effects of digital technology on the mechanisms at the root of these problems? Can digital really unlock the socio-technical blockages that seem to lead us to chaos, or is it just a headlong rush? What alternative perspectives are emerging?
This conference will address several aspects of these questions and will try to shed some light".
