Everyone is talking about sustainability but is anyone actually wearing it? As part of a build-up to the upcoming WeFair event from October 29-31, 2021, the JKU is hosting a preview exchange tips (and clothes!!).
As individuals we can't save the world but we can each do our part to make it better. Together we can do our small part to save the Earth for future generations as well as the plants and animals that share this planet with us.
WeFair, formerly known as WearFair +mehr, is Austria's largest sustainability fair. The fair will take place this year between October 29 - 31, 2021, at the Linz Design Center. Click here, opens an external URL in a new window to learn more.
To kick things off, in cooperation with the Climate Allicance of Upper Austria, the JKU would like to extend an invitation to take part in a day focusing on sustainability: organic food, information, and a clothes swap.
JKU employees can visit WeFair Day for one hour during work hours!

Is it time to clean out your closet? Perfect! Why not help others- and treat yourself in the process! How? Just bring up to ten items of clothing in good condition and drop it all off at the clothes swap. You will get markers that you can use to 'swap' for other items of clothing. Sounds easy? It is. Just join in!!
Any leftover items of clothing will be donated to Volkshilfe and help those in need.
This is how it will work:
