Greystones in Ireland becomes the first town in the world to ban mobile phones from children in schools
The Irish seaside town of Greystones becomes the first town in the world to ban children up to secondary school from having a mobile phone.
The pilot project was initiated by parents who decided that their children should not spend their most creative years on a mobile screen. Mothers immediately mobilized.
They joined forces and came to the conclusion that they agree that their children should not have smartphones until high school.
Last July, the United Nations' educational, scientific and cultural agency Unesco asked schools around the world to ban cell phones in all classrooms.
