I would like the idea of integrating sustainability standards into the /e/ operating system.
Besides the problem of sinking privacy our world is facing the great risk of climate change and global injustice.
There is a lot of interconnections between sustainability and digitalisation.
Open source overall is already a great way to advance this case. But I think there is a lot more that can be done about this.
Some ideas of an integration of sustainability to an operation system could be:
- Try to use as few software resources as possible and therefore lower the use of energy.
- Integrate tips about careful usage of technology e.g. the fact wifi needs less energy the mobile data or that streaming and using search engine generates a high need of energy
-support and feature apps that follow one of the former points or supports a sustainable way of life in any other way (foodsharing, …)
I would be happy to hear about your thought about this topic and even more about other approaches and ideas!
