Fairphone is a company producing a smartphone and creating a movement to inspire the electronics industry to look at social and environmental issues in the supply chain. We want to drive change at every stage of the value chain, from sourcing to manufacturing, design to recycling. This workshop is a hands on introduction to the issues at the heart of both mining and the life cycle of your mobile phone. The wise Oscar Wilde once wrote that “nowaday, people know the price of everything and the value of nothing” – and I couldn’t agree more. To understand the real value of a product, we believe that you need to begin with understanding where it comes from and who made it.
