Event description

Description

The collapse of the environment (climate change, biodiversity, resource scarcity) is each day more documented and better understood. In this context, technology is often seen as a way forward: it could allow us to overcome many problems by making use of cleaner energies or finding more efficient tools for our activities. However, several reports reveal that this view is flawed in many ways: the limited resources we have access to coupled to the exponential growth of technology consumption worsen the state of the Earth system in deep ways instead of improving it.

This meetup will present (in English) the key impacts of technology regarding the environmental collapse, based on three important reports (linked in References) that have been published recently. This presentation will be followed by a discussion, to find responsible ways to live and militate with those facts in mind.

Organizers:
