๐Ÿ“Œ Forget Silicon Valley. Why Europe is the place to start your tech journey

๐Ÿ“ฑ”European startups attracted more than $110 billion over the course of 2021. The continent has already given birth to household names, such as SAP, Spotify, and Booking.com, and with the popularity of the region set to grow exponentially, itโ€™s likely that weโ€™ll be seeing many more emerge in the future.”

๐Ÿ“ฑ “In Europe, each country has its own unique cultural and legal nuances to consider when building a business. While this can pose a problem โ€” whether itโ€™s operational alterations, localisation issues, or dealing with different payment providers โ€” the advantage lies in helping start-ups become truly customer-centric, putting their users first when defining, developing, and then refining their product.”

๐Ÿ‘‰ Today we want to share this article from Tech.EU https://tech.eu/2022/01/07/forget-silicon-valley-why-europe-is-the-place-to-start-your-tech-journey/ โ™ป๏ธ Digitool is an Erasmus+ project, focused on the topics of #Digitalization, and #CircularEconomy helping HEI to implement digital education solutions into their curricula

๐Ÿ’ป The project will develop an innovative, asymmetrical online course on Circular Economy //Green Business theme and it will strive to improve digital pedagogical competences of educators, enabling them to deliver high quality interactive digital education

๐Ÿ“Œ Global digital coalition presents a plan for a green digital revolution ๐ŸŒฟ

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ณ A UN-backed coalition of 1,000 stakeholders from over 100 nations unveiled an Action Plan to accelerate digitalization’s environmental and social sustainability. The Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES) intends to refocus and prioritize the use of digital technologies in order to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’s goals to solve the triple planetary emergency of climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution, and waste.
๐ŸŒ The flagship CODES Action Plan includes building globally inclusive processes to define standards and governance frameworks for digital sustainability, allocating the necessary resources and infrastructure, and identifying opportunities to reduce potential harms or risks from digitalization.
๐Ÿ›ฐ โ€œDigitalization is changing the way the world works, but the new world of work must be a sustainable one. It is critical that digital innovations and technologies accelerate environmental sustainability. UNEP is committed to supporting CODES and digital sustainability as a core part of our new Digital Transformation programme” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme and CODES co-champion.
