Have you heard about
PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE?

Products such as smartphones, laptops, printers..., have become an integral part of our daily lives.
However, the producers of these devices want to sell as many of them as possible.
Therefore, they often deliberately design products that break down faster and cannot be repaired or recycled. Both the consumer and the planet suffer as a result. The raw materials needed for this insatiable ICT hunger are extracted by the mining industry. Mining is extremely polluting with big consequences for the people and the environment. That is why we demand that our politicians urgently put a stop to the malpractices of planned obsolescence. Are you with us?

What do you know about mining?

There is an unlimited appetite for resources on a biophysically limited earth. The resource issues will be high on the international agenda in the next decades and plays, just like the energy shortage, a key role in the climate story. Play this video to know more.
