DocuLatino Ghent - Tracing the ICT supply chain @ Studio Skoop

For the 11th year in a row Catapa organizes the Doculatino Filmfestival, in Ghent, Antwerp and Leuven. Within the Make ICT fair European campaign, whose goal is to achieve a more transparent and fair ICT supply chain, this year we will broaden our focus from extractivism and look at the problems of the global ICT supply chain. Through 3 documentary screenings we will show you the path your laptop, smartphone and tablet follow from the extraction of its components to the dumping of the devices, and the related issues.

Documentaries and dates in Ghent:

1. Minga –  6th of November – 20h – In collaboration with GMF
The journey starts in Latin America, one of the main victims of raw materials’ extraction. Today for the production of a smartphone more than 60 elements are needed and the vast majority are obtained by mining. As the documentary shows, the extraction industry has huge consequences on local communities and on the environment.

Language: Spanish
Subtitles: Dutch

2. Death by Design – 20th of November – 20h
In Death by Design, we will fly to the other part of the world to Asia (China, Vietnam, South-Korea, etc) where underpaid workers in inhumane working conditions are producing electronic devices thanks to the different metals extracted in Latin America.

Language: English
Subtitles: Dutch

3. E-waste Tragedy –  27th of November – 20h
Have you ever thought about where your old smartphone ends up after you don’t use it anymore? We will discover the often forgotten part of the supply chain: the electronic waste. Huge amount of e-waste is dumped every day in Africa and Asia, shipped mostly from Western Countries. This documentary shows the reality of what people living in those waste dumps have to face every day.

Conference Fair and Circular ICT @ Het Pand

9th of December, 2019 – Ghent

The production of ICT devices such as smartphones, computers and laptops has a huge impact on environment, climate change and working conditions in Europe and in the Global South. Electronics have long and complex supply chains, involving multiple risks from raw materials extraction, manufacture, transport, use and e-waste.
Despite the complexity, a conscious procurement and use policy can be an important lever for a fairer ICT chain and a more circular lifecycle of ICT hardware. In this conference we will consider the possibilities for procurers, IT professionals to take tangible steps to develop sustainable ICT procurement and reuse policies in Flanders. European pioneers will present their good examples. This is the moment to get inspired!

The congress is an initiative of the project Fair ICT Flanders.  This project aims at improving the sustainability of ICT procurement and reuse policies in Flanders.
