Back to events

Digital and Green are the two building blocks of Europe’s way to recover from the Covid crisis. Building back better is the idea of this twin transition.

This event will discuss how the digital services and technology help other sectors and communities to become greener, more circular more resource efficient and net zero. Speakers will be asked to take a hands on approach to address concrete examples of green and digital innovation in transport, mobility, energy and agriculture as well as the political challenges.

We will hear from the Green Deal Coalition the European Commission launched recently and from experts looking at large and small digital industries involved in projects across Europe and in particular at local level.
