On March 21st 2023, the world will celebrate the first-ever Carbon Happy World – World Clean Data Day. This global event aims to raise awareness about the environmental impact of data and how we can reduce our global footprint through responsible data usage.
Let’s take a look at why this is so important and how you can join in on the celebration.
Why We Celebrate World Clean Data Day
World Clean Data Day celebrates the importance of reducing our digital footprint by using clean data. As more and more people use technology worldwide, it’s important to recognise that all of this data requires energy and resources in order to be stored and maintained. Every bit of data you have ever used or stored on the cloud without deleting sits on a server somewhere on the planet – often far away from where it was created or used – consuming electricity, water, and other resources for its upkeep.
How Can I Participate?
On March 21st 2023, individuals, organisations and companies around the world are invited to join in this global celebration by committing to implement clean data practices that reduce their environmental impact. Here are some ways you can get involved:
- Commit to only use clean energy sources when accessing or storing your data
- Reduce your digital footprint by deleting unnecessary files or unused accounts
- Encourage others in your organisation or community to make sustainable choices when it comes to their digital consumption
- Educate yourself about responsible management of data centers so that you can become an advocate for sustainable consumption.
Carbon Happy World – World Clean Data Day is an opportunity for us all to come together as a global community and make a commitment towards reducing our digital footprints. By taking small steps such as committing ourselves to using clean energy sources when accessing or storing our data, we can make a huge difference in creating a greener future for everyone!
Join us on March 21st 2023 as we celebrate the first-ever World Clean Data Day!
