When Simon finished university, he could not find anything he was truly interested in until, in a flash of inspiration, he founded the project @ctive Asyl. This association both engages refugees through recycling laptops and organizing computer courses for them. By providing refugees with the right tools, @ctive Asyl helps refugees make a valuable contribution to society.
Simon knew he had found a winning solution where he could take responsibility, learn new skills, and be creative. His message? Trusting your instincts and finding inspiration in meaningful projects with like-minded people allows us to create the change in the world that we want to see.
Hear Simon speak at TEDxHochschuleLuzern: “Winning Solutions for the 21st Century” via livestream on May 25, 2016, beginning at 5:00 pm. Or simply spread the spirit of TED and pass this link on to friends – “ideas worth spreading”.
