What can a Clothes Swap Day contribute with?
People are shopping far too much and it affects the environment and all life in different ways around the world. The wear-and-tear trend is not durable. But as a broke Uni student you still want to have a fun wardrobe. A Clothes Swap Day is a fun, social and completely free activity where no nation card is required which gives concrete environmental benefit. If you do not know what to wear, if you have clothes at home that you are tired of or no longer fit into, you now have the chance to refresh your wardrobe or maybe find something to give to a friend or family. You get rid of some clothes, which become new and uplifting for someone else. It's a win-win concept!
Organizer: Home and Culture Committee (HK-nämnden) Gotland Nation together with co-host The Swedish Development Forum (FUF)
Tip: Jakens Café (Gotland's nation café) will also be open for you to buy coffee, open between 12:00 – 15:00. There will be both food and dessert options to choose from. More info at www.facebook.com/helgfika/ or Instagram jakenscafe.
About FUF Uppsala
The Swedish Development Forum's (FUF's) local group in Uppsala consists of young people and students in Uppsala who, through our membership in FUF, want to increase our own and others' knowledge about global challenges and injustices. In the past, FUF's local group in Uppsala has organized lectures and film screenings about, for example, the protests in Iran, climate change in Latin America, the illegal deforestation of the Amazon and the criminalization of women's bodies through the abolition of the right to abortion. FUF Uppsala is non-profit and has no profit interest. Leftover clothes will be given to charity. During the clothing swap, you can also try FUF Uppsala's quiz about sustainable consumption and production!
