Futuristic food bank 💸
Similar to a food bank, the “Cyberbank” will open this Friday in Amsterdam East to help residents with their digital needs.
Any old or new equipment can be donated by individuals, companies, and the municipality — while second-hand devices get repaired by young people at a distance from the labour market.
Digital city 💻
Amsterdam is becoming an increasingly digital city and has been developing faster since the start of the pandemic.
However, a digital divide is also developing between Amsterdammers who have access to the internet and technology, compared to others who don’t, according to alderman (municipal member) of Amsterdam, Touria Meliani.
With the Cyberbank, Amsterdam hopes to bridge the gap and make the city a place for “digital self-reliance”.
