Is Progress an illusion?  Is Technology the problem or the solution? What are the practical alternatives?  Such questions were asked 40 years ago in the pioneering book, Radical Technology. This conference will ask them again with even more urgency.

Date and Time: 
Friday, September 16, 2016 - 10:00 to 16:30

Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham 

The PLATE seminar offers you the opportunity to find out about the latest developments in product lifetime policy and practice, planned obsolescence, reuse and repair set within the policy and civil contexts of the UK and EU.

A new report, published by the Global Green Growth Institute, in association with the International Institute for Environment and Development and the Green Economy Coalition, suggests that most green growth efforts to date have focused on the economy and the environment but that for it to fulfil its promise, it needs to focus on people – to tackle the poverty, inequality and exclusion that constrain both growth and environmental sustainability, to realise women’s and men’s aspirations and to gain broad societal support. 

Green Alliance’s new report examines the state of the mobile market, which is stagnating, due in part to the slowing pace of innovation in mobile phones over the past few years, with new devices taking much longer to become functionally obsolete.  This is resulting in the emergence of a new mobile market, based on capturing the value that exists in older devices.  This circular market is poised to grow, with resale estimated to grow four to five times faster than the growth in the overall smartphone market in 2016.

As the world’s population rises above seven billion, the problem of food security is of increasing concern. Since the majority of the population is concentrated in cities, what new opportunities exist for finding ways to grow and produce food locally?
