About: 50 Years after the Stockholm Conference, environmental change remains a major global issue, but another transformation has been ongoing alongside; the digital revolution. The transformational capabilities of digitalisation are a crucial tool to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 and this initiative aims to ensure these are actively directed and harnessed towards a more sustainable future.
The Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES), is an international multi-stakeholder alliance created in March 2021 in response to the UN Secretary General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation to steer the use of digital technologies toward accelerating environmentally and socially sustainable development. Over the last year, CODES has grown into a community of over a 1000 individuals and organisations that have worked to co-create an Action Plan for a Sustainable Planet in the Digital Age with the aim to offer a vision and set of priorities and proposed initiatives.
This event will serve as the official launch of the CODES Action Plan and a call to action for stakeholders to take ownership of the 9 Impact Initiatives listed in the plan as we move towards an implementation phase.
