It is a sad reality that electronic devices do not have the best environmental and social footprint, both in production and disposal. As an OT Security company, laptops, monitors, etc. form the basis for us to do our significant work. Accordingly, we can not do without it. For this reason, CyberShield pays attention to resource conservation, e.g. by using the devices as long as possible. But at some point, the time comes when we have to part with some devices. Here comes Labdoo (https://www.labdoo.org/deu/de/) into play.
Because it is also a sad reality that not every child in the world has the same opportunities to educate themselves. Labdoo is a worldwide network of volunteers that enables children to participate digitally at home and abroad by donating laptops or tablets with educational software. Via flight sponsors, the IT donations arrive at their destination in a CO2-neutral manner or are brought back for repair or recycling.
On 01 July 2023 CyberShield handed over 3 devices for the first time to Heinrich Wegener from Labdoo.
We are happy to reduce the carbon footprint of the respective devices, by using them for a longer period of time, and furthermore to enable or simplify the access to (modern) education for children.
Hey you! Do you have an old but usable laptop lying around unused at home? Consider giving it a second life and, beyond that, giving some kids access to digital education.

Many small people in many small places doing many small things can change the face of this world.
