Digital transformation is an enabler for climate action and sustainability!
Join the Digital4Climate Programme
Our existence depends on the well-being of the planet.
The well-being of people everywhere is tied to the well-being of the planet. Our personal health, our everyday luxuries, the health of our economies, the stability of our society, indeed our very existence depends on this.

We have no choice but to limit global warming to 1.5°C by 2030.
As a global community, we need to align ourselves on a shared vision and values system to enable transformational changes to lead us to a sustainable future. A vision that supports sustainable development through transformational changes that simultaneously address the economic, social, and ecological dimensions. A future that leaves nobody behind. Information and communication technologies (ICT) and the ongoing digital transformation are key for such transformational change. For example, digital solutions can reduce multiple times more GHG emissions than they emit and enable the transition to a circular economy if designed and applied sustainably.
Unfortunately, the potential of digital transformation to accelerate the green transition has not yet been realised. One of the key reasons is the lack of understanding and skills needed to apply the digitally-enabled innovations in ways to ensure a positive contribution to the environment and climate while minimising the negative rebound effects leading to increased energy and material consumption.
The Digital4Climate Learning Programme enables us to act.
That is why UNEP, UNFCCC, EU and BMZ/GIZ have come together to create the Digital4Sustainability Interactive Learning Programme powered by atingi, the digital learning platform from the German development cooperation.
Explore the potential of digital transformation for accelerating climate action
Understand the direct and indirect impacts of ICT on environment & climate
Learn strategies to enact systematic changes for a digital enabled green transformation
The course is aimed at policymakers, development practitioners, civil society, and all citizens whose mandate or interest are to accelerate the green transition and support sustainable economic development, ensuring the preservation of the planetary resources.
