WEEF 2022

Join Elektor and its partners on November 15, 2022, at electronica in München/Germany, for the second annual World Ethical Electronics Forum (WEEF). The event feature in-depth talks and debates on a wide range of electronics-related ethical issues, including eco-friendly design, sustainable development goals (SDG), the EU Green Deal, and more.

The team includes engineers, journalists, and executives from Elektor, ELEKTRONIK PRAXIS, Lenthe, and electronica. Our mission is to inspire global innovators in electronics with an open discussion about ethics and sustainable development goals. We ask potential speakers, attendees, and community members to consider the following questions.
  • Do electrical engineers, programmers, and executives have an ethical responsibility to use their technical skills and innovations in positive ways?
  • How much of a role should ethics play in how electronics companies (both start-ups and long-established firms) conduct their business?
  • How can C-level executives incorporate sustainable development, green manufacturing, and social responsibility in their business plans?
  • How do sourcing and logistics decisions affect local communities and environments?
