The event is in Finnish.
Computers and phones make our lives easier in many ways, but their production is associated with many human rights and environmental problems. The ethical issues with electronics manufacturing are associated both with child labour in Kongo and with dangerous working conditions in electronics factories.
Where is the ethical laptop of the electronics industry? Why doesn’t it exist?
The documentary Finding FairBook tells the story of the attempt by Finnish human rights activist Anna Härri to challenge the human rights violations and environmental issues associated with the electronics industry. Härri has decided to build an ethical laptop. Härri does not shy away from challenges: Bravely, she travels in search for minerals and electronics both to cobalt mines in South Congo and Talvivaara in Finnish Sotkamo.
After the movie, experts will lead the discussion on global electronics production and what each of us can do to promote the use of more ethical electronics.
