Fairphone comes to London!

By Lily

Fairphone, one of our alumni from last year’s programme,  are coming to London next week with their first prototype handset, which they’ll be showing off at their new pop up shop in Soho. As part of London Design Week, Fairphone will be telling us about the phone was built, what it is made of, and how you can repair it yourself (easier than you’d think!). You can be among the first to hold a Fairphone prototype and learn more about the considerable challenges faced in the processes behind production. There will be live demonstrations, talks, urban mining, design workshops, a hackathon and more! Read more about the programme here.
