Research coalition on the Digital-Environment System (DESC) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from all relevant disciplines and all personal backgrounds to work together in a coalition that will enhance our holistic understanding of the inter-relationships between digital technologies and the physical environment.
DESC also has a youth dimension through the YouthDESC which is about engaging, involving, and listening to the voices and experiences of young people regarding digital technology and its interrelationships with the physical environment.
YouthDESC can help achieve positive outcomes of change and enhance the overall research and policy activities of the DESC coalition by spreading and promoting DESC’s messaging and initiatives on platforms that build broad awareness and education around both the positive and negative impacts of technology on the environment, and bringing together like-minded groups and individuals into a Youth coalition.
