Have you ever looked inside a mobile phone? I personally never took any phones apart before joining Fairphone. Moreover, never did I think that this process could be so much fun and that I would learn so much from this experience.
At Fairphone, we’ve been conducting Urban Mining Workshops for a while and they’ve been such a success, that today we are passing the tools over to you. I am very happy that our Urban Mining Manual is now available for free download. It contains the necessary instructions for you to host your Urban Mining Workshop in either a classroom, workplace or as a great hangout idea with a group of pals. The workshop is designed to open up your old, nonworking mobile phone and explore the stories behind it. I’ve shared more about it on our blog.
I really hope that many of you will find our Urban Mining Manual useful and have a lot of fun organising this eye-opening workshop. And I am so curious to hear about your impressions that I’m opening up this discussion. How did your Urban Mining Workshop go? Let’s exchange experiences here!
