Fridays 4 Future.

What do you remember about this past summer? The hot days? The storms? Watching weird, unpredictable weather unfold?

One thing is certain: Our climate is unbalanced. And it is high time to take what may be the last chance before our climate collapses.

More and more people are campaigning for changes in an effort to curb the rate of climate change that is becoming too much, too fast. The Fridays for Future movement is organizing a climate strike on September 24 - naturally in Linz as well.

Protesting alone, however, isn't enough; it's also important to understand the background. After the demonstration, here at the Johannes Kepler University, we want to give young people space to get together and communicate as well as attend fascinating presentations on the topic. It all kicks off on September 24, the day of the global climate strike.

This event will take place in cooperation with Scientists for Future Upper Austria and the ÖH Climate Office at the JKU.

What will the workshop feature?

What we eat not only affects us, but our environment and our climate as well. In Austria, about 40% of the food produced is thrown away. But do you always have to throw away food that has expired? Not with "Cooking Waste"! This cooking workshop shows you how to avoid food waste and prepare delicious meals made from expired food. At the end of the class, workshop members will naturally come together and taste the fruits of their labor!
