Annual conference of the German Society for Human Ecology

This year’s DGH annual conference took place from May 7th to 9th 2020, on the subject of “Digitization and sustainability. Human-ecological aspects”.
In this context, Dr. Jana Zscheischler was invited to present first results from the transdisciplinary process in the DiDaT project on the socially responsible handling of digital data in agriculture.
Her conclusion: “Digitization offers great opportunities for creating a sustainable bioeconomy. However, as with any technological development, there are also risks and unintended side effects that we have not yet addressed sufficiently. It is important to understand and describe these better and to develop orientations for dealing with these risks.”
