The pursuit of ecological justice has been increasingly influenced by the pervasiveness of digitalised society. Internet pollution has been a major contributor to carbon footprint, while indigenous communities across the Asia-Pacific struggle with the demands to create Instagrammable tourist hotspots in their living space. Many communities are displaced by massive land grabbing to make way for the development of tech infrastructures. Additionally, while video activism has the potential to maximise impact, environmental activists still face huge challenges in countering disinformation and unfounded claims related to environmental issues. How can we collectively address these different issues together?
