Presentation & discussion of the new report "DIGITAL RESET."

In this report we argue that digitalization, in its current and mainstream form, is rather aggravating than solving many of the pressing social and environmental crises and show how to reconceptualize digitalization so that it can support the quest for a deep sustainability transformation.
