Media Tech Sustainability Conference,
June 25-26, 2024 | Online Event

Founding members of the Digital Sustainability Alliance Ben Golub, Tom Dunning and Kent Blosil will be presenting at the upcoming MTSS online event.

The Media Tech Sustainability Summit will cover a variety of aspects of sustainability in media.

After a successful inaugural event in 2023, this year’s summit is scheduled for 25-26 June and will take place entirely virtually. The event will run across a full day meaning we can cater for different time zones.
