There's a huge amount of trash also in the digital world – unnecessary emails, files, apps, duplicates of photos and videos are all digital waste. This digital waste creates digital pollution that continues to consume energy even when we have forgotten about it.
Today the International Digital Cleanup Day is celebrated, to raise awareness of the negative impact of digital trash.
If you want to learn more about the negative impact of ICT in respect of energy and resource demand, please take some time (ca 40 min.) to listen to Professor Jukka Manner's presentation in the BUP series “Implementing Sustainability at Universities". Prof. Manner works at the Department of Communications and Networking, Aalto University, Finland.
The presentation is available on Youtube, check for The Baltic University Programme and the playlist “Implementing Sustainability at Universities". Link to the presentation: https://youtu.be/vkc4Bc4fNXw
