In 2014 Mirjam de Klepper founded “Vienna Shares”, a NPO about sharing economy, collaborative consumption, and general sustainable wellbeing in the city. In 2015 she co-founded “Vienna Skill Smiths”, a new kind of school about everything, where everybody can learn and teach. This social enterprise offers affordable, short, single-session classes ranging from “Understanding EU politics” to “Longboarding for beginners”. A third project, “Étiquette. Mode mit Geschichte”, is on its way. It aims to bring together generations through sustainable vintage fashion. “Étiquette” has been short-listed for the Social Impact Award 2015.
