Chalmers Reuse Day

One of Chalmers'  contributions to the Act Sustaianble week 2022 will be organizing a Reuse Day in Ljusgården in Samhällsbyggnadshuset on 17 November. The idea is to help employees in a concrete and broad way to start thinking circularly.

During the day there will be a collection of clothes, books, electronics such as telephones, computers and cables, and also seeds and cuttings. There are also around 30 exhibitors on site, for example Synoptik, which accepts old terminal glasses, the Freeshop at Olofhöjd and several of Chalmers' Framework suppliers.
