Circular Design Speed Dating

Ecodesign @ ARA Innovation Space

On May 9th ARA Innovation Space hosted a speed dating event on circular design. Rainer Pamminger from the Ecodesign research area was invited to lead a table discussing the circular design realised within the Fairphone 2:
„He told us about the start of the Fairphone as a student project and the discovery of the inhumane working conditions of many people in the mobile phone value chain that led to the development of the Fairphone. We then were allowed to experience the modularity of this smartphone first-hand by disassembling and reassembling parts of it.“

Next to this the circularity of packaging products, a washing machine and of printing products have been discussed in detail at the other tables.
