The A1 Digital Life Summit 2022 will convene people to discuss about digital solutions for climate change. Charlie Wilson, Professor of Energy & Climate Change of the Oxford University and Visiting Research Scholar at IIASA (ECE), will participate as a panelist in the Panel Discussion.

The climate crisis is not a future scenario - it is already here today and can be experienced firsthand in 2022. Businesses, politics, society - we all need to act now. The solution is not behavioral change or technology, it is both. With high hopes being placed in digitalization in particular.

  • But which of these hopes are realistic and which of these hopes remain only dreams? How to create a future narrative of potentials instead of abandonment in order to maximize our opportunities?
  • What do companies, politicians, all of us need to do? And how can we actually persuade the actors to act?
  • What must happen and where to increase the right potentials?

These topics and more will be discussed at the A1 Digital Life Summit 2022 taking place at MAK - Museum of Applied Arts - in Vienna. Wilson will be a panelist during the Panel Discussion on September, 28 2022 at 19:15.
