Please take part in my PhD survey about sustainable consumption of ICT 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 🇬🇧

Dear Fairphone-Community,
in the context of my phd I am researching on the sustainability of information and communication technology. In particular I am regarding mobile phones with special interest to Fairphone. My aim is to find solutions for more sustainability within the mobile phone market. I would be really grateful if you would support me in participation to the following survey:
For now I just have a German and English version, but a French one is coming on Monday.

Thank you in advance!
Franziska Haucke

Awesome! Wishing you all the best for your research :slight_smile:

Thank you huskers! :smile:

All fixed now, please take part in the survey!

I stopped entering info into your questionnaire, I have to admit. This is why:

  • Do you talk about the FP1 or FP2 or FP in general?
  • In the very important field (it’s a PhD, right?) “Other” you only allow 11 characters … [fixed, my client]
  • You combine “Sustainability/ justice” that is not possible (I stopped here) [fixed by the author of the study]
  • No back button [there is a reason for that!]

I would redesign it a bit. I hope I don’t sound too critical but I would change the questionnaire (and the software behind it) I hope this is not too discouraging, it’s not meant that way!

Thank you for your feedback. I didn’t add a back button, as people could change there answers according to the following questions. I talk in general about Fairphone, I will go in more detail in my future research. This is just the beginning, and just a first move to get closer to the field. I checked again, and don’t know at what point there is a limited space at “Others”. Would you specify this for me? I also changed sustainability/ justice in importance, thank you so much for that point. Unfortunately I can’t change the software, as my Uni just has this one. Thank you for your interest!

No problem. I hope I don’t sound to harsh, not my intention. The “no back button” makes sense, but people should know this before. Maybe the client I was using (Chrome) was causing the problem.

If I remember (I don’t want to “spam” your questionnaire) it happened at all “Others” between “How did you find out about Fairphone?” and the one where I stopped, the “Sustainability/ justice” one.

I think the software you use will also impact the results you will get (just check surveymonkey as an example).

I can check again if you want, I can put in TEST in the “Other” fields, so you will know it’s me :smile:

Update: It works now. Maybe it was my client? I tested the German & English “Others”.

Hey @Zissi, out of curiosity, how many responses did you get (approximately)? Did you spread your survey via other channels as well or only here on the forum?


Hey, so far I have 383 complete and useable answers.

I hope I’ll make the 400 till tomorrow, but I reached my goal already :smile:

Also the open questions gave a lot information, so I am curious to start the analysis :smile:

many thanks to all of you :slight_smile:


The survey is now closed. With 401 answers! Many thanks, I’ll update you, as soon as I do have any results :sunny:
