Take the Disconnect Challenge

Disconnect Box

The devices that we interact with each day provide so many opportunities – whether it’s chromebooks for learning at school; phones that give us the power to stay in touch or stay organized; or apps that simply allow us to have fun –  the progress of these various devices have shifted the very way that we’re living our lives.

With so much of our day-to-day revolving around these devices, particularly our phones, research is showing some concerning results from this increased time in front of screens, for both children and adults.

We have unequivocal evidence that too much time with our devices has become not only a barrier to the amount of time we spend outside, but also a barrier to our creativity, our conversations, and to the very way we interact with one another. 

It’s not only affecting our physical health, but our mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.

Contest is for everyone - adults, kids and teens. To take the disconnect challenge, pick up your Disconnect Box at Banff Town Hall.  

Then participate in the challenge and complete the email survey. You will then be entered into a draw to win prizes from Banff Lodging Company, Mount Norquay Tube Park and more local companies.

If you have any questions about the challenge, please drop by Town Hall or call 403.762.1251.
