Belgium’s National Day & Celebration of 5th year on the throne of His Majesty King Philippe
On 21 July, which is the Belgian National Day, His Majesty King Philippe also celebrated the fifth anniversary of his kingship. On? this occasion, he invited a number of organisations to a specially set up “King’s Village” in Brussels’ Warande Park. Among the few invited organisations were Close the Gap and WorldLoop, featuring one of Close the Gap’s Digitrucks. The Digitruck is a mobile, multi-functional IT lab fit in a 40’ container on wheels, powered by solar energy. Through this Digitruck, both WorldLoop and Close the Gap could spread their story and mission to the general public visiting the King’s Village. Children could play games on the computers inside the Digitruck, while parents discovered Close the Gap and WorldLoop’s sustainable IT and e-waste solutions.
