#3 FUTURE PRODUCTION: THE DISCUSSION
Tue, 18.10.2016, 6.00 pm
MAK Columned Main Hall
How will we produce goods tomorrow? In front of a backdrop of increasing resource scarcity, future-oriented production emphasizes
social and ecological sustainability, whether through new concepts for energy and resource efficiency, fair production conditions,
the use of local resources, or the support of corresponding technologies.
This discussion with Fairphone product and innovation manager Miquel Ballester together and proven experts on the topics of
circular economy, design strategies, materials, and technologies will address the necessity, opportunities, and limits of
sustainable production. Fairphone, one of the most advanced makers of mobile telephones worldwide, has come up with developments
from social innovations in the supply chain to a notable step-by-step plan for sustainable mobile telephones.
