Technology regularly affects it’s users’ ability to concentrate, motivation to participate in non-technological activities and engage in social organizations. This talk presents the idea of No Phone Tuesday, where everyone is invited to put their phone away once a week to benefit from a certain amount of time without an object we have become addicted to. It encourages participants to say no to the impact technology has on their physical form, education and mental health and embrace the potential of the detachment of this necessity.
