No Tech Day
Practical Action is asking you to give up your gadgets (just for one day)
If you love gadgets this is going to be quite a challenge.
We're asking our supporters to go without gadgets for one day to raise awareness of how much we all rely on and use gadgets in our everyday life, and think what life is like for people in the developing world who do not have the same access to technology that we have.
Are you a tech addict? Just think what it would be like living without computers, laptops, sat navs, mobile phones, MP3 players, games consoles, iPods, digital cameras and all the wonderful electronic gadgetry that is available in the developed world. Give it a go - spend one day living without all your technology and tell us what it is like?
We want to hear your experiences
You can either email us direct or post it on your own blog, photo diary or video and then send us the link at firstname.lastname@example.org - obviously get someone else to use the technology on the day!

And remember to tell your friends.
