I just found a blog post of the UN Climate Change Newsroom published recently on the winners of the United Nations’ Momentum for Change (climate change) award and was happy to see that Fairphone is one of them.
I think it is worthwhile to have a look at the other winners as well: 16 Game-Changing Climate Action Initiatives Announced
Edit: I just added the link to Momentum for Change. Thanks to @kevr1990 for adding the specific link on Fairphone.
This is fantastic.
Why hasn’t Fairphone made a song and dance about this?
Here’s some details from them on Fairphone in particular.
Not sure either - perhaps they are just really overwhelmed
It was mentioned on Fairphone’s facebook page last week: https://www.facebook.com/Fairphone/photos/a.135396719848570.38710.106482829406626/903320719722829/
But I’m surprised it didn’t make their latest email. Maybe they’ll make up by livestreaming the award ceremony later
P.S.: EDIT: I see now that their email included two modest press links covering the award selection.
Do you refer to the email about the delayed delivery? I saved it locally on my home computer and may not have read it carefully enough since I already read the blog post before getting the mail… I’ll check later.
Yes, I mean yesterday’s “Community Newsletter: Fairphone 2 gets ready for production” email. It included (at least) two press links referring to the UN award: eco-business.com and univision.com.
We actually care!
