Could you go without your phone, laptop or games console for a day?
These days we are so dependent on technology that to go without any electronic or digital items would be unthinkable. Many people across the world, however, live without the basic technology we take for granted every day. ‘No Tech Day’ has been set up by charity Practical Action, an organization that uses simple and innovative technologies to tackle poverty. No Tech Day asks people to surrender their gadgets for a whole 24 hours and report back their experiences.
Everyone who takes part in No Tech Day gets a profile on the website where they can tell the world why they’re such a gadget addict, and why they decided to take part—visitors to NoTechDay.org can vote on who they think is the biggest tech addict.
As an extra incentive to take part, one of the lucky participants could win an iPad—the most anticipated ultimate tech gadget of 2010!
No Tech Day takes place on Saturday 27th March. You can sign up by visiting No Tech Day.
