Event description

We are constantly being encouraged to update our smartphones and we should be asking what the true environmental and social costs are.

How can we all enjoy owning a smartphone yet cause minimal damage to people and planet?

How do we talk to each other about the problem of digital technology in an informed way?

What is the relationship between mineral extraction for digital technology and environmental justice?

London Mining Network’s PhoneCycle board game is designed to stimulate lively conversation about – and consider solutions to – the social and environmental problems of producing and disposing of digital technology.

This friendly and collaborative workshop is suitable for people of all ages. We particularly warmly encourage young people to attend – especially youth climate strikers.

London Mining Network will also share news of some of their current projects and how young people may get involved in their work.
