Forum for Technology Justice

The Centre for Carbon Innovation, Edinburgh, 10-11 March 2016

Eighty people converged in Edinburgh for two days of inspiration, collaboration and passionate debate about our shared future and how technology will shape it.

  • What would a world with fairer access to technology look and feel like?
  • What would it take to end the use of technology that harms others and the planet.
  • How must the nature of innovation change to support this?

The organisers, Practical Action and the University of Edinburgh, have created and launched an online hub hosting the outcomes of the forum, including videos of the short talks from:

  • Chi Onwurah MP
  • Ben Ramalingam (IDS)
  • Matthias Huisken (iFixit)
  • Ken Banks (
  • Fiona Reid (Oxford fellow, former director of UKCDS)
  • Simon Trace (innovation consultant and former CEO of Practical Action)
