There are many actions you can take

Inform yourself and protect yourself as much as possible

This is the equivalent of putting your oxygen mask on first.

Share—make your stories of personal change to safer ways of using technology, part of the conversation

If you find your sleep is improved from moving your bed away from a smart meter, or because you turned the Wi-Fi off, share it. If you feel proud of yourself in navigating technology, and moving over to wired, share it. If you have found your health improving, having made these changes, share this. If you found a great deal in Ethernet cables, share that. If you placed a sticker on your toothbrush reminding you to turn the WiFi off, share this. If you find making these changes inconvenient and really a nuisance, but are still making them, because you want to keep yourself, your family, your friends, your pets and other creatures safe, share this, and why. Here is a great example of a mum and son sharing on Facebook how they both plug in the Playstation, and other devices using ethernet cables.


Make yourself accountable by this sharing

Like all changes, there will be steps forward and back. If you share what you are doing, and why you are changing, you also create accountability for your actions, a good move when changing difficult habits!

Make a to-do list with personal actions and share when complete. Make it your own. It could be filled with small or large actions, such as:


  • Put a personalized sticker on your phone to remind you it is emitting radiation. 

  • Purchase an air-tube headset, or radiation-free handset, to keep you from being exposed to radiation during calls.

  • Hold a workshop with friends to help each other go wired.

  • Get hold of an Ethernet cable and get more distance between your computing workstation and your router.

  • Get hold of a meter to see what level of radiation exposure your school, home, marae or workplace has and compare it to recommendations by the BioInitiative scientists or Building Biology scientists. Earthwave's Andy Hooley has them for rent and will advise on their use, or he can do an electromagnetic-radiation survey for you and advise on remediation. 

  • Save someone's love life: print out of our Save the males social media resource and stick inside a toilet door at work. 

  • Buying a notebook to use, instead of your smartphone.

  • Create an event for a group related to this subject. 

  • Record your sleep health or other health issues before going wired and examine after going wired.

  • Put a reminder on your toothbrush to get you to turn off your devices at night and distance them from your sleeping areas.

  • Purchase an alarm clock so that you do not have to have your cell phone beside your bed a night.

  • Put your router on a timer so that your internet usage and the amount of sleep you get is controlled by you, not FOMO (fear of missing out) or the need to comment on posts, or 'like things.'

  • Make your own creative social media posts based on information about EMF safety.

  • Invite friends for a cell-phone-free social event.

  • Ring and make an appointment with a political representative, and let them know that the standards relating to EMF effects are an area that NZ needs to at least play catch-up in, or preferably lead in, and why this is important to you.

  • Watch a YouTube clip or short documentary on this issue.

  • Ask your media representative's journalists to dig into the reasons why our laws are not as protective as those in France when it comes to protecting children.

  • Ask your children's school to go back to wiring their technology instead of using WiFi to protect their developing bodies.

  • Read the EMF science on your specific health concerns


Aim for creative communications about the danger of EMF

We all know how it feels to be found doing something wrong, we get reactive and we dig in—collecting arguments intensively for our side of the story. For this reason, try to be creative in your approach rather than slipping into preaching or confrontation. The writer of this page apologizes for both evangelizing and affronting, even if with the best of intentions. 


We would like our public officials to pursue a safety-conscious technology race

Yes, we know there is a race on to be the first to develop and implement 5 & 6G technologies. "We need to ask our government ministries supporting this race, whether winning this, without adequate safety testing, therefore with the potential for poor health impacts to all, and increased risk of exposure to technological warfare, really constitutes a win? Where is the evidence that safety will trump profit? They could pursue a different race with a better prize.

Join our Safe ICT NZ. We would love your help and involvement

If however, you do not wish to join the society, but still want to help with campaigns, or to sign up for newsletters, and notices of events, we understand. But please do let us know of your interest. We have some big ideas, to get moving on.

International Appeal

Currently, we can escape to radiation-free zones in the country, however, this will not be the case in the near future when radiation will be beamed down to us from thousands of satellites to enable the 5th Generation of Technology which includes the Internet of Things.  

This International Appeal asks for a stop to 5G on earth and in space


Save our copper landline network

This petition asks to save New Zealand's copper landline system so that users can choose to use their landline and also be safe in an emergency.
