Software that lives on

The longer a phone lasts, the less waste it creates, and the more we begin to treat our mother earth beyond just a resource for materials. And that long lasting-ness includes making what's inside the screen, the software, compatible with the hardware for as long as possible. Fairphone has a dedicated team of computer scientists keeping older Android software alive - for you. 

Unless of course you want to change up the source code of that software yourself, then it is open for you and your friends to play with it, and prolong its life even further. Be the architect of your phone - and your future.
