The project “Wellbeing of digitalized societies and workplaces” was co-funded by the EU and supported by multiple other organizations. We are grateful for our numerous supporters, without whom the implementation of the project and the development of the guidelines would not have been possible.
Successful sustainability encompasses several levels: the practical level - here, for example, the raw materials in the smartphone or the type of software design, the socio-political influence on laws and rules, and the level of values: Are we taking everyone with us? Where does digitization promote our coexistence, where might it hinder it? What is our position on artificial intelligence? The 34 Ethical Guidelines provide a comprehensive look at all these levels and give valuable pointers for our dealings with digitization.
