Nowadays, many people reflect about the consequences that their actions cause for the environment, for fellow human beings from other countries and for their posterity. But what one can do about it in practice, still remains a mystery for most of us. The Afro-Asian Institute of Salzburg (AAI) has now developed the ultimate guide for fair consumption that makes it easy to lead a sustainable life in Salzburg:
The brochure contains numerous locations which offer delicious meals and drinks in a completely sustainable way. Restaurants which count on regional and biological products from species-appropriate husbandry; cafés which provide vegetarian and vegan dishes; organic marts with fresh goods from local farmers; or chocolate shops which take care about a just treatment of their suppliers – all this you will find in the Salzburg compass. But also clothing shops which use certified organic materials and support fair trade are listed in the guide. “Jeanskamel” is a design gallery with a mini-café, for example, that fabricates furniture, bags and other art works from old jeans and which has a coffee at hand for everybody who donates their well-worn trousers.
Moreover, you will find a category for everybody on their way through Salzburg, where footways along the most important attractions are introduced, but also diverse bicycle rentals and plans of the public transport means. And for those who have no use for their old bike anymore, there is the perfect location to get rid of it sustainably by helping refugees. After that you will find green accommodation like our Hotel zur Post or different campsites. Last but not least, exciting participation possibilities are shown, like a workshop where you get tools, material and expertise for free, so that you get the chance to pimp your old furniture instead of throwing it away. You will also find the AAI world dinner where you can cook together with people from other nationalities and threreby learn something about other cultures. The compass offers manifold possibilities to commit oneself to integration, gender equality or to the education sector honorarily.
