EU Green Week Special Event: How can digital tech contribute to a healthier planet?

Success stories and best practices

Organised by The Brussels Times with the support of Huawei

Climate change has dramatic implications for the earth‘s environment, its oceans, rainforests, and soils.

Europe can lead the way within our global efforts to build a healthier planet.

This webinar aims to demonstrate ways in which digital technologies can effectively be applied to protect our global environment.

We will focus on case studies from biodiversity and agriculture, and explore how the public sector, scientific research institutions, NGOs, enterprises, and citizens directly can work together to build a greener, more sustainable, and healthier global ecosystem.

Tune in to our livestream on 11 June to be a part of this important debate, and hear from key experts and decision makers sharing their insights.
