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.
