This week sees COP26, the UN conference which is probably the last chance for humanity to mitigate the worse effects of the climate emergency.
At Akademy earlier this year KDE had a talk about Towards Sustainable Computing. Open tech can make a difference.
OpenUK will be hosting a venue on 11 November with a day of events about sustainability with technology emphasising why open tech is the most effective way to do that.
Sessions include an opening from former government minister Francis Maude, Launch of the OpenUK Consortium Data Centre Blueprint, Open Collaboration Opening Sustainability led by Red Hat, Opening Up the Energy Sector, building the Sustainable Open Future for the UK.
In the evening I’ll be hosting the OpenUK awards 2021, showcasing and recognising the best people and organisations for open tech in the UK.
