SHADE sits at the intersection of Sustainability, Health, AI, Digital technologies and the Environment.

SHADE is guided by a fundamental question: How should the balance between AI/digital enabled health and planetary health be struck in different areas of the world, and what should be the guiding principles?

To address this SHADE promotes interdisciplinary enquiry to understand and make visible sustainable practices situated in specific geographical and societal contexts. Undertaking both normative and solutions based research, SHADE draws on empirical, epistemic and ethical perspectives from philosophy, law, sociology and ethics, as well as from more quantitative approaches such as life cycle sustainability assessment.  See more about SHADE here.

SHADE was formed in September 2023 and has a global membership that includes academics as well as societal actors. Its founding members are already working on relevant projects listed under the Projects tab below.
