Is your digital footprint killing the planet?

The United Nations have said that climate change is the defining crisis of our time and time is running out. The agreements and compromises that governments reached at the 2021 COP26 Climate Change conference in Glasgow, although incredibly important, probably don’t go far enough. There is now a large scientific consensus that humans are the leading cause of climate change.

Most people already know that they need to play their part and consume, waste and emit less. However, they may not have realised that their online digital activities are not as clean as they might have thought and may have serious consequences for the planet too.

This talk follows the TEDx guidelines and so is less than 18 minutes long.
