challenge overview

Punkt. Challenges

Punkt. is a dynamic, independent company, and we have always maintained a close connection with our customers. As well as contact made in person and via social media, we have over the last year begun running Punkt. Challenges. The initial focus is on digital detox events to encourage debate about how people interact with technology, but watch this space for other projects…

Digital Detox Winter 2017

The Challenge will be ending at 11.28 am on Monday 20th March (the vernal equinox). Deadline for submitting reports: midday Thursday 23rd March.
