Raising awareness on digital minimalism AgaInst Digital wAste for improved digital sustainability behaviours among youth or shortly AIDA is a KA210-YOU – Small-scale partnerships in youth. It runs from January 2023 to July 2024, with 3 partners from the European countries of Slovenia and Spain.
Within the project AIDA, we wish to present the user-friendly and easily applicable idea of digital minimalism to young generations as digital waste (poor data stewardship) also causes unsustainable environmental consequences. And since young generations are passionate about saving the planet, they might not think too much yet on the problems of the long-term effects of storing vast amounts of information in a digital format.
The project aims to involve young generations that are already keen on using various digital tools and present them with the need and applicability of the sustainability aspect within. Thus, it indirectly targets the unnecessary digital hoarding and positively impacts the cybersecurity of the users as well as their energy consumption patterns. Moreover, sustainable use of digital tools and digital housekeeping can also lead to better mental health and general well-being.
