Inhalt In the last decade of the 20th century, many early enthusiasts of the emerging digitalization process regularly emphasized a positive side-effect of this transformation: digitalization, they argued, would allow for a more sustainable, less resource-hungry form of social and economic development. In the past twenty years, this optimistic discourse has given way to a much grimmer picture. Overuse of raw materials to produce digital devices, new forms of precarious labor, social fragmentation, spread of false information as a result of fake news and political polarization: all these phenomena and many more have now turned into standard headlines. Digitalization in its current form, on the one hand, and sustainable development, on the other, do not seem to necessarily belong together after all. But is a combination of these two goals really out of the question? If not, what should be changed in the digitalization process to make it more sustainable? In this lecture series, we will hear twelve experts in their field present their views on the challenge posed by digitalization to sustainable development, as well as on how to render these two processes more compatible than they seem to be now.
Lernziele Students will be able:
- to understand and clearly describe the challenges posed by digitalization to sustainability and sustainable development;
- to understand and clearly describe what various scholars think would be required to make the digitalization of processes and tools more compatible with sustainability;
- to describe, analyze and evaluate the various discourses of the past decades about the relationship between digitalization and sustainability;
- to independently analyze and evaluate the digitalization of processes and tools from the standpoint of sustainability;
- to independently formulate possible solutions concerning the problem of the compatibility between digitalization, on the one hand, and sustainability and sustainable development, on the other hand.
