Sean Brady | ReBuild for Good

Name:

Sean Brady

Topic:

ReBuild for Good

Synopsis:

We often think Innovation is only for the commercial sector however we can look at ways to innovate in the Social Enterprise space and how we can also look at ReUse as an opportunity for others to ReBuild for Good. As part of 'ReUse October' initiative, we challenged ourselves to disrupt the normal behaviour to discarded PCs which could be a benefit to charities. Most charities are eligible for the latest Windows 10 Operating Systems which can be used along with a good clean-up and some TLC, bring an old PC back to life which would otherwise be destined for the scrapheap. Our idea is to ReThink your old PC and getting it going some good at a charity with a new lease of life.
