“Circulation Festival” is an event that started in 2022 to create a new “circulation” movement with young people and players related to reuse, mainly in Kyoto City.
https://junkan-fes.com/?utm_source=pressrelease&utm_medium=link) In addition to the “¥0 Market,” a free used clothing provision and collection project that you can participate in, workshops,
exhibitions, and stage events where you can have fun and experience reuse and recycling, we also offer carefully selected ingredients that everyone can feel at ease. There is also a food court with food, making it an event that everyone can enjoy.
We will also conduct social experiments, such as measuring the amount of CO2 emissions reduced by reusing used clothing.
This time as well, we will include projects led by student members who volunteered to participate, and we will introduce the efforts and activities of various people, regardless of second-hand clothing, and hope that young people will be interested in the recycling system. We are planning to implement the plan.
We are always recruiting project management members! If you are interested, please contact us from the official website.
