Branch, an online magazine published by Mozilla and partners, has won an Ars Electronica Award for Digital Humanity from Prix Ars Electronica 2021. The magazine explores the issue of a sustainable and just internet for all.
Says Michelle Thorne, Mozilla program officer and Branch managing editor: "The internet is the world’s largest fossil fuel-powered machine. If we continue business-as-usual, the IT sector will be responsible for 14% of the world’s carbon emissions by 2040. We believe that the internet must instead serve our collective liberation and ecological sustainability. That’s why we created Branch magazine."
Past articles in Branch have examined the hidden environmental impact of Amazon usage; advised on how to build a low-impact website; and scrutinized AI's contribution to climate change.
