About this session
We’re in the midst of a climate emergency. The internet contributes 2% of the world’s global carbon emissions. Can we create an eco-mode for Firefox that empowers users to reduce emissions and advocate for a more sustainable internet? What else could the open internet do for the planet? This session invites technologists, designers, climate activists and citizens who care about the internet and the planet to dream and develop this idea and even more ambitious ones together.
Goals of this session
Through some prepared materials and a peer knowledge exchange, participants will learn more about the internet’s contribution to the climate emergency. Participants will then generate and engage with ideas for climate action with the browser, sharing their expertise, insights and suggestions in an interactive format. We’ll conclude with a structured documentation of the brainstorm and ways to continue developing and discussing the ideas.
