GDCsymbol_RGBWe are glad to announce the Green Digital Charter Awards for 2013 which aim to promote and showcase the cities and projects that are contributing to a more green digital future.

Green Digital Charter (GDC) aspires to create a networking space for cities to be able to showcase and exchange projects, tools and best examples that help combine ICT and energy efficiency. A second important objective is to help cities benchmark, monitor and report their progress towards a green digital future. To this end, through FP7-NiCE project, the GDC toolkit was created (http://www.greendigitalcharter.eu/toolkit/gdctoolkit_Home.php) and all signatory cities have been asked to:

  • Describe tools that they have used and projects that they have designed or implemented
  • Assess their own progress
  • Measure their ICT direct carbon footprint

In order to further motivate cities use the toolkit and share knowledge with other signatories a Green Digital Charter Awards for 2013 scheme has been prepared and announced. For more information you can look at the Call for awards document, Rules & eligibility document or the Awards entry form to be completed and sent.
