The tool and its added value

The Digital Collage is a fun and collaborative half-day workshop with a similar educational method as the Climate Fresk. The workshop also aims to lay down the key solutions to build a more sustainable digital sector. It then encourages participants to discuss on the topic for fruitful debate. This workshop is a real team-building tool, allowing participants to come together and discover how to achieve sustainability in the digital sector.
It is primarily intended to be carried out in-person, but an online version is also available.

Version 2 of this workshop benefited from the expertise and contributions of EcoInfo CNRS.

"The Digital Collage is an excellent awareness-raising tool. It made us understand the impacts of our digital usage on the environment, while setting out solutions to act on an individual and collective level."

Daphné G.

"I enjoyed the whole workshop a lot. It is an excellent way to learn and understand the causes of our digital habits and their consequences"

Jean-François B.

"To me, the main asset of the workshop was to think globally and find the connections between “digital” activities and their externalities. From my personal experience, these connections remain poorly perceived by users."

Vincent M.
