These days are of course open to ISIT-BE member organisations to help them roll out their Sustainable IT strategy within their teams, but they are also open to organisations that are not yet members, so that they can discover the challenges of IT for sustainable development, learn more about the help they can get from our Insitute and get to know various experts. These sessions can take a variety of forms, to best suit your needs and activities: together, we’ll build a tailor-made programme to make this training day a success for your teams. The many possibilities for interaction enable you to transform a training day into a team-building activity, which will strengthen the cohesion of your teams and their desire to act in favour of a more sustainable digital transformation of your organisation.

These days are flexible, and the elements below are intended to give you a basis for discussion, on which we can adapt the content and duration of each module. For some of the modules, we can bring in external partners to cover their areas of expertise: eco-design of digital services, sustainable development, responsible digital marketing, accessibility of digital services, etc.
