Professor Toby Miller will be visiting Edge Hill University on Wednesday 26th March 2014 to deliver his lecture ‘Greening The Media’.
You may not look at your cell phone, TV, or computer the same way after rethinking the media from a green point of view. That perspective can reveal secrets lurking within electronic devices. Marshalling economic, environmental, and historical facts, Toby Miller will examine the environmental, safety, and health record of these technologies to show how making, consuming, and discarding such gadgets is rife with toxic ingredients, poisonous working conditions, and hazardous waste. But all is not lost: we can think creatively about ways to solve these problems as green workers, consumers, and citizens.
