Our common (digital) future? 🤔 Wie wirkt sich die Digitalisierung auf die globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele (aka SDGs) aus? 💻🌿 Welche Herausforderungen gibt es? Wo liegen die Chancen? In diesem Workshop wagen wir eine Zusammenschau.

Digitalisierung und Nachhaltigkeit gelten als die größten Herausforderungen im 21. Jahrhundert, die Verbindung der beiden Themenkomplexe wurde bislang aber wenig beleuchtet. In einem Impulsvortrag werden die Einflüsse der Digitalisierung auf Gesellschaft und Umwelt thematisiert und in einem interaktiven Teil vertiefend diskutiert. 🌍💻🌿

👉 Dieser Workshop wird von Mag. Martina Friesenbicher (Leitung des Fachbereichs Wissensmanagement am Zentrum für digitales Lehren und Lernen der Universität Graz) und unsere oikee Noemi Zmork (Präsidentin von oikos Graz) mitveranstaltet.

Do you want to improve your inner capacity to deal with our increasingly complex challenges and to further achieve the Sustainable Development Goals? Then don’t miss our Workshop about the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) focusing on the IDG Thinking! 🧠🌍🌿

To drive global challenges forward, we need certain skills and qualities to counteract them. The Inner Development Goals fill exactly this gap! 👏They support to successfully work with complex societal issues and thus show the relevance of achieving the SDGs. 🌍 This framework was recommended for the implementation and delivery of the SDGs at the European Parliament resolution of 23 June 2022.

In this workshop we will give you an overview of the IDGs, why we need to develop those inner dimensions, and dive deeper into the IDG Thinking. Afterwards, we will reflect on our thinking skills and their applications to our own situations as well as the opportunities that they can offer to us in gaining these skills and how we can drive change with the IDG Thinking in our daily lives (private and professional). 🌟🧠👤 Which of these areas are helpful in a dimension of our life? At the end of the workshop, we will focus on the interconnectedness of thinking with the other IDGs. In addition to the theoretical input, participants have the opportunity to deepen these skills in interactive activities. 👥

👉 This workshop is co-organized by our oikees Noemi Zmork (President of oikos Graz, Project Lead chapter LEAP, member of Transforming Education and Marketing (PR, Promotion & Website), Azam Nazari (Treasurer, member of oikos Talks and member of chapter LEAP), and Linda Segerer (Project Lead of oikos Talks and member of chapter LEAP).

We’re looking forward to seeing you next:
