Kate invited to celebrate UN International Youth Day with ABS

Kate was lucky to be invited to present the story of the clothing exchange alongside her PhD research into young people living sustainably. The friendly folks at ABS were all smiles as Kate told tales of swapping and scheming. When sharing the stories from her interviews with 15 young people who are all reinventing their lives to reduce their eco footprints, the audience gave knowing nods… especially when it came to addressing ‘housefill’ and wasteful consumption. She  also took great delight in taking a stance against the patronising stereotypes for Gen Y that the media and marketeers like to invent. Fun all round and a smashing morning tea!
