Day 4

Day 4 was workshop day at the Fairphone office. We started off with Fairphone designer James stimulating our brains with his thoughts about 3D-printed accessories for the FP2. Then Katie from the Fairphone team lead a discussion about community events and we talked about how the Austrian Fairphoners community developed, from the first steps until our recent booth. In the end we came up with some cool things that Fairphone could provide the community with to make organizing meetups and events easier.

After the lunch break we continued with a Meta Urban Mining Workshop (what to keep in mind when organizing one) held by @anon2751513 and finished our workshop sessions with a walk through of flashing Sailfish OS by @Johannes.

In the evening we did a #Screenings4Action of the documentary “When elephants fight” by the movement #StandWithCongo, followed by a Q&A with the director’s assistant via Skype. I really recommend you to sign their petition, so we can have a bigger impact. Here is the trailer of the documentary:

The evening ended with an arts performance in front of the Stedelijk museum, where the opening of the new exhibition featuring the FP2 took place. Since there where so many people we couldn’t actually visit the exhibition, we decided to go to a pub and have some (more) beers there…

PS.: Throughout the day we were joined by some new faces, amongst others @emma and @JohannesG.
