Digital Society: a semester of ideation, iterations, prototyping and testing brought innovative concepts related to the green and digital transition. How can the greening of the economy be joined with digitalization? What possible jobs in the future lay ahead for digital product developers and designers being green and sustainable jobs at the same time?
Two projects recently started at Thomas More University of Applied Sciences where students, researchers and teachers jointly and in co-creation look for future scenarios based on the green and digital transition agenda: ‘Digital Society’ and ‘Circular business models in fashion’.
It is by engaging the future workforce itself – students – in the exploration of future green and digital scenarios for work, living & learning that we as UAS can positively and accurately contribute to this transition.
This first blog article by Thomas More UAS pays attention to the WHY and the GOALS of the Digital Society project. A later blog will report on the outputs of the project ‘Circular business models in fashion’.
