EXPO 2020 Dubai
Digital Cleanup Challenge
Until 20th of March 2022
“Keep the best and delete the rest” of photos and videos taken during EXPO and reduce your carbon footprint.
6000kg CO2 less produced
= 100 trees on vacation
A typical full grown tree can absorb around 21 kilograms of CO2 per year. By deleting your digital waste, you help direct that effort into CO2 reduction where it is most needed.
How to do a digital cleanup?
1. Visit EXPO 2020 in Dubai during the period 1st of October until 20 of March.
2. After the visit, check how much space your photos and videos take in your phone. Write it down!
3. Take your phone and delete all the blurry, duplicate, or just not good photos and videos, and leave only photos and videos that are worth keeping.
4. Check how much space the photos and videos take now from your phone.
5. Submit your result on this page and see how much C02 did you save in a year.
6. Share your result on social media!

What is digital trash?
Unnecessary emails, files, apps, duplicates of photos and videos are all digital waste. They create digital pollution that sits in the backups on servers that provide us with cloud service or on your devices filling the storage space. All storage cloud or physical, consumes energy in its production, upkeep and even when we decide to swap for a newer model. Simply put, these forgotten bytes continue to consume energy simply by existing.
Why should you care?
Climate change is of no news to anyone, and many of us already feel its effects directly. Managing climate change will be the single most crucial issue for this generation. Keeping digital waste under control is one of the simplest things that any individual or organization can do to help reduce energy consumption and creation of unnecessary CO2.
