Circular economy: lifecycle of electronic trash
11/10/2021 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Are you excited about the new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy? How long have you been using your current phone? How many ‘supporting’ gadgets, like airpods, chargers, and speakers do you own? What are you going to do with them when you replace them for a newer model?
Most people still throw away their old phones and other electronic gadgets. Where does waste go? What happens to all the components and is it even possible to convert them into a resource? What’s the true cost of a new model and where does it come from?
Join us for a 1-hour workshop to follow the lifecycle of electronic devices. You will play a game and create the story while learning about the principles and Circular Economy and discovering the ways to close the loop. You will explore the environmental inputs & outputs at different stages of an electronic appliance’s lifecycle.
