This project deals with how students and educators at DTU can share knowledge in a more efficient and sustainable manner. Students are now using both digital platforms and at the same time printed paper. This is not beneficial considering the separation of communication media and also raised environmental impact caused by the printing system. This system is again not structured in an optimized way which again cause an unnecessary use of resources. Instead of just reducing the negative environmental impacts from printed paper including; power, paper and toner this project aims to turn the situation around and focus on what printed paper represents: the sharing of knowledge. It is also a fact that DTU as an institution want to be among the best regarding educational practice, while also embracing new ways to be more efficient and sustainable.
