The Magdas Hotel is a business like any other but there social and sustainable approach is quite unique. The employees are (former) refugees and they collected their furniture through crowdsourcing.
I met Ira who is the founder of Die Mutmacherei, an initiative that promotes sustainable projects in Austria.

In the evening I went to the Erdgesprache (Earthtalks), the biggest sustainable event in Austria this year, probably no coincidence that I was here just at this time. There were talks from Celine Cousteau, the granddaughter of Jacques and a journalist of The Guardian.
