In this final Open Stage talk of the session 
From Digital Transition to Ecological Resilience at Lift16, David Li reports back from his hometown Shenzhen, in China, where most of the world's electronics ends up to be dismantled and "recycled" for its gold. Though, in this very place, a revolution is brewing from the bottom up.

Listen to David tell us how makers in China are taking the lead in revolutionizing the way we treat e-waste and creating a circular economy.
