HostingSince the beginning, we liked the idea and the concept of foodsharing, so it was our heartfelt wish to support foodsharing. We follow the project and it’s development and we want to participate in new developments, ideas and directions in future. That is why we support yunity henceforth. yunity correlates exactly with our spirit and our philosophy. As a highly engineered corporation we use not just completely regenerative sources of energy for our business office, but we take an active part in the prevention of energy and give “old things” e.g. disused computers the chance of a 2nd life.
Shared VisionAn utopia-economy-conference where we discuss the ways and challenges to a moneyfree community. We are happy to have yunity as a model-project for that. It shows, we can organise a socio-economical cooperation differently - collective, solidary, sufficient. There are direct act options beyond the logic of achievements and utilization. yunity can give an answer to the question “ How do the alternatives for a sustainable economy look like?”
Shared Visionliving utopia, the project- and action network espouses in particular the cause of a social change to the point of a sustainable, social-fair world. yunity is a big step towards an utopia: Sharing unconditionally, practicing sufficiency and bringing solidarity cooperation to life. We realize participatory rooms and want to introduce and spread the project yunity in workshops. This makes theoretical ideas of tomorrow’s world to become lived practice and encourages.
Shared VisionIn 2012 the foodsaving began in Berlin and a little later foodsharing.de was launched to facilitate the sharing of surplus food for individuals. Now united under the name ‘foodsharing.de’, already 4 million kilograms of food have been saved thanks to more than 600.000 hours of unpaid work by 15.000 Foodsavers, lawyers, programmers and all the other people involved in 2.500 cooperating Stores. To make the unique success story of foodsharing a global one through yunity, the first WuppDays took place in September 2015.
WuppDays HostThe ‘Seminar am Michaelshof’ is an officially recognized specialized school for social pedagogy of welfare with focus on youth pedagogy and institutional pedagogy. Our school trains around 110 seminarists and we offer further education and training, as well as regularly occurring preparation classes for the general exam for people without high school graduation. We are looking forward to hosting yunity because we feel very close to their ideas of sustainability and their positive vision of globalization, which can be realized in local social spaces.

SuppliesSince our company foundation 36 years ago, we are 100% committed to the organic idea of the production of our Krunchys. For us, an organically created product is the best food of them all - and never just a trend or a fashion or the possibility to earn money quickly. The same respect towards food is also present in foodsharing. That is why Barnhouse supports the WuppDays 2015 and we wish all the participants a creative, fruitful and successful time.
