Biomimicry Think-Tank

Event Description


We cordially invite you to our next Biomimicry Think-Tank on Monday 16 February. This time we will discuss sustainable product quality.

Did you ever curse after the electronic device you bought not too long ago broke just one month after the guarantee expired? Do you wonder why buying a new product is cheaper than getting your old one fixed?

Then you will be interested in Stefan Schridde‘s talk on “Planned Obsolescence”. Stefan is founder of “Murks? Nein Danke!” a Berlin-based organization fighting bad and irresponsible product quality: http://www.murks-nein-danke.de/murksmelden/

Discussing viable alternatives to “kaputt innovations” -products that are designed to break- Stefan will talk about optimal use, resource efficiency, circular economy, regional services and simpler repair systems.

After his talk, Stefan will be available for a podium discussion that will be joined by Benjamin Surangkanjanajai who is running a “Repair Café” to fix broken products to extend their value and life time: http://www.berliner-woche.de/nachrichten/bezirk-treptow-koepenick/alt-treptow/artikel/39013-im-cafe-grenzenlos-sollen-kaputte-dinge-gerettet-werden/

Please join us for this exciting event here:

date:     Monday, 16 February

time:    19.00 – 21.00

venue: Betahaus, Café on 2nd floor

We are very happy to have Stefan and Benjamin at our Biomimicry Think Tank as their initiatives directly link to several of natures’s principles: being resource and energy efficient; using circular systems; built to allow for decomposition and exchange of broken modules. We are delighted to discuss their perspectives in the light of biomimicry and circular economy principles.

As there is a  limited capacity we recommend to register quickly. The event is free, however we’d appreciate a voluntary donation of 5 EUR.
