Sustainable Intelligence – Intelligent Sustainability

To ensure sustainable development worldwide on an economic, social and ecological level, the United Nations has defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Digitisation poses new challenges to the achievement of these goals, but due to its transformational character it can also open up new opportunities. However, conflicts and synergies arising between SDGs have hardly been explored – neither in general nor in relation to digitisation in particular. This is the background for the project group’s research. Using innovative approaches such as collaboration engineering and citizen science, the project group aims to identify digitisation-related conflicts of goals and synergies between SDGs, discussing them in a transdisciplinary manner and developing solutions. The focus is on SDGs 4 (quality education), 10 (reduced inequalities) and 12 (responsible consumption and production).

Hochschule Fulda


Interdisciplinary Conference

The conference “Partizipation und Nachhaltigkeit in der Digitalität” hosted by ZEVEDI project group Sustainable Intelligence – Intelligent Sustainability explores the tensions between citizen participation, sustainability, digitality and Artificial Intelligence. Citizens are understood as Citizen Scientists who, in addition to their interests, also contribute problem-solving knowledge. The first part deals with the perspective of administrations and the second one with the perspectives of Citizen Scientists.

The first part of the conference will he held in German, the second part in English.
