Ulko-Tammio, a tourist island off the coast of Finland, is a beautiful place where visitors are encouraged to distance themselves from their cell phones this summer. The goal of this initiative is to become the first island in the world without cell phones. Tourists will be asked to keep their cell phones (or any mobile devices) in their pockets, distance themselves from social media and fully enjoy the island. This is an initiative that could also be implemented in other natural and recreational destinations.
