'Hot or Cool Institute' - let's discuss climate protection, research, policies, 1.5-Degree Lifestyles


At this booth, you can learn more about the various research projects around digitalization and sustainability carried out at the Department of Sustainable Digitalization @ TU Berlin and the Einstein Center Digital Future.

Just in time for the Bits & Bäume 2022, the department will publish the brand new report "DIGITAL RESET. REDIRECTING TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE DEEP SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION". This report is the outcome of a two-year science-policy dialogue and presents a comprehensive analysis of opportunities, risks, governance options and specific policies how to make digitalization work for social and environmental sustainability.

At Hot or Cool, we work at the intersection of society and sustainability, employing science to push for the rapid, radical and systemic changes needed to address the magnitude and urgency of the sustainability challenge. Our work is driven by the need for a circular society*, one which recognizes the ecological limits within which we must ensure equitable opportunities to pursue individual and collective well-being.
