​​​​​​​Technology For Good # 14: E-waste - using, repairing and recycling


Not only does the technology we use create mountains of e-waste that can be difficult to dispose of safely, but much of it also contains valuable, rare and finite minerals and metals that are essential for the continuing production of new models of technology. Very few countries regulate this waste stream. E-waste is not just a topic for environmentalists, but for all technology producers and policymakers. Hear about this and the efforts to improve e-waste management, from our expert speakers on this episode of Technology for Good which is  being launched for International E-waste Day, an annual UN day to highlight the growing e-waste issue.

This podcast is the fourteenth episode of “Technology for Good"- an ITU podcast series that focuses on how technology is helping to shape the world around us.
