Mobile Technology, the Environment and Climate Change

Course Content

Course Overview

Mobile technologies have the potential to promote and contribute to a sustainable and low-carbon future. This course examines case studies of mobile service applications in the areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation, business sustainability, smart cities and the improvement of the natural environment. The course also addresses the environmental footprint of the mobile industry and covers sustainable responses of network operators to topics such as energy use, recovery of used and waste equipment and reporting on climate change impacts.

Course Objectives

• Examine the potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT),
including mobile technologies, to contribute to a sustainable future.
• Learn about the importance of environmentally sound management of used
and waste electrical and electronic equipment.
• Identify opportunities for mobile services and technologies to support
environmental and climate-change management in smart cities.
