Remember when we posted about Work for Humankind, the select group of volunteers who traveled to Robinson Crusoe Island and turned it into one of the most remote offices on the planet?
Work for Humankind just published a documentary on the project and a website where you can learn about the volunteers, the work they’re doing, their partnerships with Island Conservation and the local community and the tech they’re using to make it all happen.
From the documentary:
Work For Humankind challenges you to work from anywhere, while supporting the local community in your free time.
We believe it’s up to us to look after the people and places around us. It’s not just about ‘leaving no trace’ but helping our local communities improve their livelihoods and the environment.

What is Work for Humankind?
Work for Humankind is a bold initiative from Lenovo which called on volunteers from around the world to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to experience first-hand how to make a long-lasting difference to a remote island community while working from one of the most remote offices in the world - enabled by tech. Volunteers were able to do their day job from the world’s remotest island, whilst helping to save the endangered wildlife and empower the community. Their mission? In partnership with Island Conservation and the Robinson Crusoe Island community, prevent the extinction of endangered species and establish support for the community as it works toward achieving sustainability.
