Timmy de Vos
Timmy de Vos is CEO and founder of the E-waste Race. With this project he wants to bring raw materials back into the chain and at the same time creating awareness about e-waste in children and their surroundings. The way he does this is to combine a informational guest lecture about resource scarcity, reusing, reducing and recycling with a collection campaing. With ten participating schools in a municipallity or region we collect an average of 14000 devices per race. All the raw materials inside the collected devices get a second life. Timmy started the project in 2014 with three races, in six years the project grew to more than thirty races every year all over the Netherlands.
