Electronics Watch holds an annual conference in December each year. This is the only conference in Europe that focuses on connecting leading practioners of socially responsible public procurement with labour rights monitoring partners from electronics production regions globally. Public buyers hear directly from these monitors about workers' experiences and conditions in their own supply chains. This immediate connection to the reality on the ground is vital to improving social responsibility in supply chains and to making a difference for workers and their communities.
The Electronics Watch Annual Conference 2019
The Electronics Watch Annual Conference 2019, a sustainable conference, organized in collaboration with Ajuntament de Barcelona, will take place on December 4 at the Centre Cultural Contemporanea de Barcelona (CCCB), a landmark in the historical Raval neighbourhood in the heart of the city. Once an almshouse built in 1802, the CCCB was conceived in 1989 as an arts centre to generate debate, thinking and reflection on themes such as the city and public space, ecological models and the concept of sustainable development. An exciting location indeed for the Electronics Watch Annual Conference!
A detailed programme and registration will be available here in September. In the meantime, you might like to check out some of the comments and photos from previous conferences. You can also read about the different levels and benefits of sponsorhip here. If your organisation is interested in sponsoring the conference, please get in touch.
Sponsors confirmed so far: Bread for All, UNISON and Good Electronics.
