Visit to WEEE Centre (during Close the Gap’s Silicon Savannah Mission to Kenya)
On March 24, WorldLoop and Close the Gap visited the Waste Electronical and Electrical Equipment Centre in Kenya, a long-term partner of WorldLoop. This visit took place in context of Close the Gap’s Silicon Savannah mission, which engaged more than 40 participants to discover the booming tech ecosystem of Kenya. During the visit, the participants were informed about the working of the Centre and about the importance to treat e-waste in a sustainable and responsible way. Participants were led through the process of handling e-waste and could see how elements such as batteries and metals were managed in a sustainable way.
