    • In an era of rapid technological advancements and disposable consumer culture, the Right to Repair movement has gained significant traction worldwide. This movement seeks to empower consumers by granting them the legal right to repair their electronic devices and appliances, challenging the prevailing trend of planned obsolescence and promoting a more sustainable future. 
    GreenBuzz Zurich and One Planet Lab will explore the Right to Repair initiative as it makes its way through EU law. This event aims to shed light on the potential impact of this groundbreaking legislation and its implications for consumers, manufacturers, and the environment.
    Join us as we bring together experts, advocates, and industry leaders at the forefront of the Right to Repair initiative. Together, we will examine its significance in reducing electronic waste, extending product life cycles, and fostering a circular economy. Our panel will share their experiences, knowledge, and insights, highlighting the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
    Questions we will discuss:
  • What is the EU’s Right to Repair law status and its impact on Switzerland?
  • How will the legislation affect consumer choice and product availability in Switzerland?
  • What challenges/opportunities does the law present for Swiss manufacturers and repair services?
  • How does the law address electronic waste and contribute to sustainability in Switzerland?
  • What are the implications for Swiss consumers in terms of cost, convenience, and repairability?
  • What new laws can we expect in Switzerland?
    • This event is open to anyone with an interest in sustainability, consumer rights, technology, and environmental preservation. Whether you are an industry professional, policymaker, environmental activist, or a concerned citizen, this event will provide you with valuable insights and perspectives on the Right to Repair initiative and its implications.
