Switzerland

The Solidarcomm campaign in Switzerland involves the collection of mobile phones as well as organising workshops to raise awareness among teenagers.

Collection points

Collections are set up either as one-off or permanent drop-off locations across municipalities, businesses and community groups within Switzerland.
Since the launch of the project in 2003, thousands of mobile phones have been gathered in Switzerland before being given a new life.

Educational Workshops

In order to raise awareness about the impact of the over-consumption of mobile telephones amongst the greater public, particularly teenagers, Terre des Hommes Suisse has developed several educational tools. A variety of tools are proposed to classes starting from 10 years old, and are represented by well-known and reputed educational animators. These workshops are offered to both elementary school and secondary school students.
