Public Sector Pioneers: Meet the leaders reusing IT equipment to bridge the digital divide

Public Sector Pioneers: Meet the leaders reusing IT equipment to bridge the digital divide

Public sector pioneers are leading the way in the circular economy, tackling both environmental issues (e-waste) and social issues (digital exclusion) by reusing their IT equipment to bridge the digital divide.

This panel discussion highlights the best practice of public sector pioneers who are increasingly worried about digital exclusion and deepening inequalities among the populations they serve. We want to shine a light on the providers who are stepping up to the challenge of climate change, working out their pathways to reducing landfill, achieving net zero targets, and promoting a more regenerative, circular economy.

Our discussion explores the pathways, motivations and enablers that would help any public sector worker to deliver a similar scheme or become a regular donor to the National Device Bank. The audience will get to hear from a public sector pioneer who is leading the way, alongside Good Things Foundation whose vital research explores the barriers and solutions to addressing e-waste and digital exclusion.
