Donate your old electronic devices at the Celebrate Life Festival 2017!

Do you have an old cellphone which no longer serves you? In collaboration with the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), we are collecting no longer in use electronic devices (cell phones, Ipads, Notebooks) during the Celebrate Life Festival 2017. They will be re-distributed to GEN’s community leaders for sustainable change in the Global South. These are key figures in rights and peace movements, poverty reduction, climate change and social justice. 

Before giving away your devices (smartphone, tablet or laptop), it is a good idea to restore them to default settings.

It is advisable to wipe any and all sensitive information from your smartphone before passing it on, not just to ensure that your personal data remains private, but to also make sure your device runs like new for its next owner.
