The City Council of Sant Boi de Llobregat fosters the reuse of its out-of-use computing devices for children from low-income families, enabling them to participate in online distance learning – which is highly relevant as schools are closed due to COVID-19 and corresponding confinements. The project closes the digital divide for children in need and shapes a circular economy ecosystem that benefits local economic activities.
Ereuse.org’s mission is to promote society to avoid the premature recycling of electronic via the practice of reuse. Our project with the City of Sant Boi de Llobregat creates local job opportunities which fosters local resilience.
